School Library Journal – “Do you often question whether itâ€™s OK to include portions of a book, film, or song in your classroom lesson? What about whether YouTube can be used as a teaching tool? Hopefully, librarians will have a clearer understanding of copyright law with the new guide The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education.”
I’ve been meaning to write a post about the importance of librarians understanding and not breaching copyright. This includes not downloading music (or anything for that matter) illegally via Livewire or BitTorrent.
Sure, copyright law can be annoying, but it’s the law and librarians should NOT be breaking the law. Especially copyright laws.
Does your iPod have illegal music on it?
