Webinar Description
One of the great challenges of using videos that you don’t own is that accessibility laws require most educational institutions (as well as government programs and other industries) to provide closed captions for video content. This is where copyright law can interfere. Blake Reid, an Assistant Clinical Professor in Technology Policy and Telecom Law at Colorado Law, walks you through the conflict between copyright law and captioning law, focusing on the legality of captioning videos that you don’t own. The topics covered are:

  • Captioning laws and regulations
  • The conflict between captioning and copyright
  • Statutory exemptions
  • Fair use
  • The future of copyright and captioning

Talking to Students about Copyright

As part of the college’s copyright committee, ER&D created language for faculty and staff to use to explain copyright to students. You may use this text in your syllabus, post it to Blackboard, post it in student labs, or share it as you like.

There are copyright laws that govern the extent to which you may use work from other people including their written work; photographs, drawings, or other images; video and music.Fair use of these resources is related to plagiarism but has more to do with permission to use these resources in the first place.  “Fair use” allows you to use copyrighted material in some circumstances.   Plagiarism is the use of copyrighted material without citing the source (attribution). When you create an original piece of writing, image, video or music, your work is also protected by copyright laws.
