A Fair(y) Use Tale

What happens when videos of great magnitude come along? Nowadays they are shown, distributed and lauded in the course of a day. This is the case with a breakthrough video by Professor Eric Faden of Bucknell University, whose mashup video uses Disney characters to define the term Fair Use. As copyright laws go, Fair Use wins the award for Most Murky. Watch "A Fair(y) Use Tale", streaming here. "A Fair(y) Use Tail" seems to shed light on free-speech issues that've plagued documentary videographers and filmmakers for some time. It may turn into a great litmus test. If the video is allowed to live on, it will show that "Fair Use" works, if the video is not, then greater discussions of copyright law are sure to come up. http://cyberlaw.stanford.edu/documentary-film-program/film/a-fair-y-use-tale (via boingboing)
