That Time When Larry Cuban Ignored Copyright Law. Again?

This has happened several times, and it's been fun, but has always concerned me. Not because I'm greatly concerned about the income of cartoon artists and their publishers, but because I've been teaching teachers the ins and outs of Fair Use for years.

Then this happened, where I tried to begin with kindness. I really appreciated Hall stepping in and think every teacher should review the University of Michigan's excellent Fair Use Myths section, embedded within their guide to Copyright and Using Video. I've always been a huge fan of Hall's Lean and Mean No FAT Guide to Fair Use!

Which is why I was so surprised to see this today, right in the middle of Copyright Week! I can't tell you how pleased I am to see that Dr. Cuban has overcome TTWWADI and obtained permission to globally distribute such a fine selection of cartoons.

Happy Copyright Week!
