Keynote: Beyond the Copyright Wars: Fair Use, Free Speech, and Reframing the Policy Debate

Abstract
Copyright has become a terrifying word, as copyright problems have floated into everyone's daily life.Journalists, bloggers, filmmakers, photographers, librarians, teachers, students and remix artists face daily decisions about how to handle copyrighted material when they use it in their work. Recent research on fair use--the most flexible and ample of exceptions from copyright's limited monopoly and a free speech right--has reframed the academic and policy discourse around copyright and fair use. American University Communications professor Patricia Aufderheide will discuss this reframing in a discussion of her new book, Reclaiming Fair Use: How to Put Bala! nce Back in Copyright (University of Chicago Press, 2011), co-authored with Prof. Peter Jaszi of the Washington College of Law at American University.
