What will be covered?

The Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia were adopted in
September, 1996, in a non-legislative report by the U.S. House of
Representatives Subcommittee on Courts and Intellectual Property.  Prior
to these guidelines, an instructor who wanted to include excerpts from
multiple sources and multiple formats as part of a multimedia teaching
project risked being sued by one or more copyright holders.  Although the
guidelines do not have the force of law, they provide guidance to
educational users and encourage the creation of multimedia teaching
projects while protecting the rights of copyright holders. 

This live satellite videoconference will explain what the final fair use
guidelines for educational multimedia permit and what they prohibit by
clarifying and interpreting how the guidelines can be used in real-world
situations.  Two panels will be available for this discussion and to
answer your questions. 

Panel one will include six members of the Fair Use Guidelines Working
Committee who, over a period of two years, met regularly to develop
guidelines that balanced the interests of educators and copyright owners. 
Members of this panel will interpret and clarify the guidelines, shed
light upon the development process, discuss the congressional validation
process and the committee's relationship with CONFU (Conference on Fair
Use), and field questions from the audience.
