Every librarian knows that it’s best to stay away from using Disney movies in the classroom.  Stories of Disney lawsuits are abundant within the library community.  However, at a recent conference I was introduced to a quite interesting video called “A Fair(y) Use Tale.”  In this video, Eric Faden shares information about fair use in quite an unusual way – he only uses short clips from Disney movies to tell the story!  At first, it’s a little hard to follow, but it’s definitely worth watching (be sure to pause to read the “FBI Warning”).  I plan on using this video at a faculty meeting to review copyright issues.  Enjoy the show!
