Multimedia Services offers limited video services for the faculty and staff of The Citadel. The services that we offer include tape dubbing and digitizing audio and video, as long as it falls within the boundaries of the Fair Use Act and is used for furthering the academic standards of The Citadel. Multimedia Services also offers limited filming capabilities in order to provide the faculty and staff with an archival record of an event for later academic review and discussion.
The Fair Use Act
Multimedia Services strictly adheres to the guidelines set forth in the Fair Use Act, in Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976. If you have any questions as to whether or not your project is acceptable under the Fair Use Act, please contact us.
The U.S. Copyright Office is the ultimate resource for learning about the Fair Use Act. They have a brief description of the act, as well as a brochure(PDF) titled "Reproduction of Copyrighted Works by Educators and Librarians".
The Stanford University Libraries have put together a very comprehensive site about Copyright and the Fair Use Act. Also listed on the Stanford Law School site is a very clever video, called A Fair(y) Use Tale, that uses only snippets from Disney movies to describe the Fair Use Act.
The Copyright Advisory Office of Columbia University has an in-depth site on Copyright and the Fair Use Act geared towards the University's community. The site is broken into different topics, and includes a section on Distance Education.
