Professor Eric Faden sat down and edited together a short film on copyright and fair use rules using small snippets of various Disney films. It’s a little disjointed sounding, but it gets the point across quite well.
The irony is that Disney is one of the more… vigilant… companies out there when it comes to… defending… perceived breaches of their copyrights. They’re not afraid to sue at the drop of a hat if they think someone somewhere is using any amount of their material for any reason, fair use be damned, and they’ve also spent millions lobbying Congress to ensure that their material will pretty much never enter the public domain. So watch and learn before Disney issues a DMCA notice to YouTube.
