Hello,

I know this has been asked before but still not clear.

A faculty wants to use clips of a movie or documentary to put in his blackb=
oard so students can review.

TEACH Act is just for distance education, so this won't apply, because this=
is not a distance education class.

Fair use will apply because are small portions, can be copied. But what abo=
ut transformed to digital? And the have them available online?

Under the Education Multimedia Project, a faculty can use clips (meaning co=
nverting into digital format and save them on a disc or computer) and add t=
hen using the project to his presentation/project for up to 2 years. Howeve=
r I have not read so far anything that tells me, that it is ok to put it in=
Blackboard or anything similar even though password protected.

Can anybody clarify this?

Thanks
Cindy

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. 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.
