Just wanted to share a slideshow I created for a presentation on copyright and fair use to be shared with students at Richland High School tomorrow. The show can be downloaded from Slideshare.
FYI, the answers to the quiz will be posted on the Slideshare comments.

Unfortunately, the ’Fair Use Guidelines’ you present in your Pop Quiz perpetuate the myth that fair use can be boiled down to a set of numbers and percentages. According to Kenneth Crews (a preeminent scholar in the field), “…in fact the guidelines bear little relationship, if any, to the law of fair use”.
I would strongly encourage you to take a look at Renee Hobbs’ book, Copyright Clarity, or download the ’Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education’ for free at http://www.mediaeducationlab.com/code-best-practices-fair-use-media-literacy-education-0
I would be happy to talk to you more on this subject before your next presentation. I am leaving a similar comment on Steven Anderson’s site, too. I can connect you with Renee Hobbs of Temple University if you have further questions about this critique.
