Fair Use General Guidance [youtube-global.blogspot.com]
As expected, the questions varied dramatically, reflecting the diversity of content created and shared by YouTube users. Some of you wanted to know about dubbing over a cartoon, while others asked about adding commentary to video game play and someone else was hoping to create software tutorials using computer screencasts.

This week Anthony Falzone, Executive Director of the Fair Use project, and Julie Ahrens, Associate Director of the Fair Use project, answered a selection of the top voted questions (in the video’s description you can select which specific questions you want to see answered):



This video is worth watching, not just for YouTube. Listen and learn about Fair Use.

Already watching it, very nice material.

Too bad is not written, even as they said it is not official and cannot apply to specifics (you should ask your lawyer) still it would be very useful for quoting purposes and reference. It directly answers some questions I've seen on the forum a month ago. True, thanks for sharing.

Kudos to engine for posting this. Copyright and fair use has often discussed here and there is a lot of concerns, some valid, but many not.

I highly recommend this copyright discussion. It's long and the format is awkward. Watch it while you're having lunch at your desk. I suspect, like me, you'll bookmark it.

I like how they go beyond copyright and reach into doing what is right and ethical, about giving credit for creative works. It's the mark of being professional, copyrighted or not.

x2 for what has been said.

They also mention something important, that giving credit is sometimes not enough to qualify as fair use (but is something I see a lot in blogs, most of them now buried by panda).
