Rework, Reuse, Remix (6-8)
Students explore the concept of fair use, apply it to case studies, and create an original work of fair use. Students learn how to judge whether something is protected by fair use by using the "Four Points of Fair Use Student Handout". They apply the four points of fair use to two case studies, a remixed video and a mashup song, to judge whether or not they fall under fair use. Students then create an original work of fair use by reworking copyrighted material to create a collage or a remix video.
Students will be able to ...
- identify the key points required for a creative work to fall under fair use.
- judge whether or not the two case studies can be called fair use.
- understand the value of fair use by reworking and remixing copyrighted material in a collage or video.
