Report to be Presented Next Week: Educators' Hands are Tied by Confusion
about Copyright

Please join us for a special event on September 25 in Washington, D.C.
The event will be webcast at http://www.wcl.american.edu/go/medialit

Confused about copyright? You're not alone.
Media literacy educators rely on the ability to use copyrighted
materials in their teaching. But ignorance about copyright -- and
particularly a lack of awareness of the fair use provision - is
interfering with teachers' ability to teach important critical thinking
and communication skills that enable them to promote digital learning.
Please join Professors Renee Hobbs of Temple University, Peter Jaszi of
the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American
University's Washington College of Law and Pat Aufderheide of the Center
for Social Media in the School of Communication at American University
on Tuesday, September 25, for the release of their report, The Cost of
Copyright Confusion for Media Literacy. The event starts at 2pm,
followed by a reception.
Participants include will include high school teachers affected by
copyright regulations, representatives from the media literacy movement,
and leading legal scholars in the area of copyright, fair use, and
education. Panelists will explore such issues as:

* What do teachers know (and don't know) about copyright?
* How does copyright confusion limit the quality of student
learning?
* What are effective solutions to this problem?

Who: Pat Aufderheide will moderate the event. A panel of scholars,
including Hobbs, Jaszi, and Kenneth Crews, a legal scholar at Indiana
University School of Law-Indianapolis and author of Copyright Law for
Librarians and Educators, will discuss the findings of the report.
Following the panel, the following people will discuss the meaning of
the report for their organizations and work:

* Dale Allender, Associate Executive Director of the National
Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the leading professional
membership organization for English language arts educators.
* Shay Taylor, media teacher at Montgomery Blair High School,
Silver Spring, Maryland.
* Karen Zill, on the board of directors of the Alliance for a
Media Literate American (AMLA), the national membership organization for
media literacy

We look forward to seeing you there and chatting with you at the
reception!

It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
