The Challenges of Copyrights: Scenario 3
Copyright and permissions can be a perplexing and frustrating fact of education. The decisions you make regarding copyrights have ethical, legal, and career implications.
In this Discussion, you will consider a scenario in which you need to make a decision on how to use copyrighted materials in your online course.
You have prepared a presentation in which you have embedded a video you accessed on the Internet. The presentation is posted as a resource in your online course.
Consider how the elements of fair use apply to the situation. What are the possible legal, ethical, and career implications? How might you resolve the situation to use the piece in the most fair, ethical, and legal manner?
Between Monday and Thursday of this week, use this group Discussion thread to engage in a debate with your colleagues in which you address the ethical and legal considerations of your assigned scenario. In your initial posting, state your position on the scenario, being sure to reference the Learning Resources or outside research with appropriate citations. Then respond to two or more of your colleagues’ postings.
Return to the main thread to complete this week’s Discussion Assignment.
