January 25, 2010 - 6:36pm CCTV went to the Museum of Fine Arts for the Human Rights Watch Film Festival and facilitated a youth camera training with the students from Beacon Academy. The goal was to use the Museum's collection as a starting point for thinking about human rights. Human rights refer to the basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled. The videos represent the student's perspective on rights evoked (or abused) in a specific piece. There was no wrong answer as art has many complex and varied interpretations, but most importantly, the students were able to use the Flip cameras and the skills from the workshop to post their videos directly to the web.

December 11, 2009 - 7:58pm In last night's three-hour copyRights workshop, we explored the legalities of using copyrighted material in new work, brainstormed ways to effectively implement a fair use of copyrighted material and discussed different concepts of ownership. Below is a resource list compiled from the class. Look it over and explore the sites as they have multiple layers of relevant information for producers of online video and documentary content. However keep in mind that no list can make up for the value of group discussion and dialogue, brainstorming and spontaneous conversation about navigating the waters of media production so please sign up for our next copyRights class on Wednesday, March 10 from 6:00pm-9:00pm at CCTV. US copyright law has several features that permit quotations from copyrighted works without permission or payment but only under certain conditions. Fair use is the most important. Producers need to be familiar with Fair Use and know that it's a case by case judgment call, which they can help make themselves based on the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video. What problems might you encounter if you continue to use copyrighted material without consulting the... read more

August 20, 2009 - 2:34pm Whether you're working on a documentary, a short film or a remix, using copyright material without license or payment permission IS legal. It's important to keep in mind that video makers are protected by Fair Use which allows video makers to use material for commentary, critique, discussion, and example. To legally use copyrighted material you must follow Fair Use guidelines. If you intend to share your final product with the world via a video sharing site such as YouTube or on CCTV's channels these guidelines will protect you from copyright infringement and DMCA takedown notices. The Fair Use doctrine under copyright law protects video makers and keeps copyright holders from violating the First Amendment. Fair Use has been an important part of copyright law for more than 150 years. When implementing the material into your own work, ask yourself: * Does your video transform the copyrighted material into a new work? Do you use the material for a different purpose than that of the original, or do you implement the material for the same intent and value as the original? * Was the material taken appropriate in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work... read more
