Students will learn and demonstrate methods to gain permission for the proper and legal use of copyrighted content for use in Video Production.
We have already studied copyright and fair use laws. While there is much available content (images, videos, audio, etc.) on the internet, some of it is illegal to use, some may be used with permission and/or specific restrictions or limitations, and some is available for just about any purpose. While using content for "educational purposes" is great for the classroom, it does not protect people in most "real world" situations. Paying for content is certainly an option, but the focus of this lesson is to gain permission to use content for free whenever possible!
