Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book cuts right to the heart of uncertainties about how copyright and fair use apply in the classroom―confusions that block many valuable pedagogical interventions. Hobbs offers the information straight, addressing common misperceptions and laying out the current understandings of intellectual property law in clear, engaging prose.” (Henry Jenkins, Provost's Professor of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Art 2009-10-30)

"This long-awaited book is exactly what has been needed to relieve educators’ anxieties about the legality of using copyrighted materials during instruction and presentations. In addition to answering questions about fair use practice in an easy-to-understand manner, Hobbs offers examples of how Internet and communications technologies support essential literacy and communication skills in 21st-century classrooms. This slender text is a must-read for every educator independently or as a professional development choice." (Diane Lapp, Distinguished Professor of Education 2009-12-14)

"This book is provocative, readable, and well written. It will make educators think about their practices and framework. Recommended." (Suzanne Libra 2011-10-18)

About the Author

Renee Hobbs is Professor and Founding Director of the Harrington School of Communication and Media at the University of Rhode Island, and Interim Director of the Graduate Program in Library and Information Studies. Professor Hobbs is one of the nation's leading authorities on media literacy education. Through community and global service and as a leader, researcher, teacher, and advocate, Hobbs has worked to advance the quality of digital and media literacy education in the United States and around the world. She founded the Media Education Lab, whose mission is to improve the quality of media literacy education through research and community service. In the early 1990s, she created the first national teacher education program in media literacy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. 

Renee Hobbs maintains an active research agenda that examines the intersections of the fields of media studies and education. She has published four books and dozens of articles in scholarly journals in three fields: communication, education and health. She is the founding co-editor of the Journal for Media Literacy Education, an open-access peer reviewed journal. In 2012, she served as a Fellow for the American Library Association Office of Information Technology Policy. As a field-builder, she helped found the Partnership for Media Education, which evolved into the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE), the national membership organization for media literacy. She has sought and received exemptions on behalf of K-12 educators to protect fair use of copy-protected digital media as part of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), helping advance the benefits of digital learning for all teachers and students.  

 

Renee Hobbs received an Ed.D in Human Development from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an M.A. in Communication from the University of Michigan, and a B.A. with a double major in English Literature and Film/Video Studies from the University of Michigan.

If you're an attorney looking for advanced case law on copyright this book may be a little on the basic side for you, but coming at it like I did with very little prior knowledge I found this book to be very useful and did change the way I think about copyright and the fair use of materials. It is a useful book and reads quickly, it also suggests additional resources which you can jump to when you're finished with it and has a presentation associated with it that you can give to others. This will be a useful book in impacting how you approach copyright questions and the steps you take in thinking about fair use decisions, particularly if you're a teacher. However, don't come at it thinking it will give you all the answers, apparently every situation is different. The book does provide basic tools for evaluating those situations and determining if it is fair use of copyrighted material, however.

It was a required textbook for class. Glad I learned I could download Kindle for free and buy the eBook instead of the hard copy.

So few people really understand Fair Use. This book spells it out .
