In the following pages we will look at some video creation tools that require users to mix and remix images, audio recordings, and video recordings. Some teachers get nervous that their students might be violating copyright laws by remixing content. This section is intended to lend some clarity to the murky issues of Copyright. Student created works: The best way to ensure that students do not violate Copyright is to have them use images and audio recordings they've created from scratch. Public Domain works: Images, sounds, and videos that are in the Public Domain can legally be reused by students without attribution. In the following pages we'll look at how to find Public Domain works. Creative Commons works: Increasingly, authors and producers and choosing to label their works with Creative Commons licenses. These licenses allow people to reuse an author's work under certain conditions. In general attribution is required. Consult http://creativecommons.org/for clarification on the requirements of each license. In the following pages we'll look at how to find Creative Commons licensed works. Fair-use in Education: Copyright is designed to protect the authors (producers) of creative works from loss of revenue as the result of their work(s) being reused without compensation. This is why I cannot make 100 photocopies of The Davinci Code for my students to read in class. By making those photocopies I'm depriving the author and publisher of the revenue from 100 books. I could, however, make photocopies of one paragraph to give to my students to use as the focal point of lesson on writing. When it comes to videos, images, and audio recordings, the same concept applies. If your students are not detracting from someone's earning potential and are re-using the works in a manner that can be considered to be creating a new product, they can probably reuse the works.
