 Copyright vs. licensing
Copyright: The conundrum
 Public domain held hostage by a „thin
  copyright‟
 Fair use fear

 Copyright clearance overuse

 The K-12 „cut & paste‟ curriculum (so why
  are we shocked by Napster?)
    Copyright vs. licensing
Licenses: The reality
 Public domain held hostage by contracts
  and licenses
 Fair use absence

 Negotiation and agreement out of our
  hands and jurisdiction
 No guarantee that assets will remain
  available

           Quality
    Should art & art history
        be sacrificed to
         PowerPoint?
   Why not display the original
   high quality image instead of
         a reduction of it?

Why not: Irfanview (PC) (It’s free!) or
         Iview (Mac & PC)?
 Assumptions & expectations
(a.k.a. untested assumptions & wild expectations)
Digital is easier than analog
Learning is better with digital tools
We will never have to reinvent the
wheel again!
Everything we need is on the web
Coping with the “Dark Side”
        CAA‟s to-do & wish list
Listening & hearing
Opportunities
Advocacy
Collaboration
Good practices, early training
