Article 11 min
Watch this video for a playful, high-level view of fair use and copyright principles from Bucknell University Professor Eric Faden.

The Walt Disney Company is well known for fiercely protecting their intellectual property rights. Their lobbying efforts have resulted in Congress twice changing U.S. copyright law. In this video, Bucknell University Professor Eric Faden whimsically reviews copyright principles by combining animated movie clips from the very company responsible for the rigorous laws in place today.

As a member of the U.S. Department of Defense, it is critical you abide by copyright and fair use law. Ensure the content you produce complies with these laws by applying the principles covered in this video to your own work.

For answers to specific legal review questions in regards to fair use, public affairs personnel can also rely on the expertise of their local judge advocate office.
