Fair Use Fridays: Fair Use Is A "Bit of a Loophole For Students and Teachers"
Another horrifically bad and misleading copyright video aimed at children. It doesn't mention the US Constitution. It doesn't reference the First Amendment. It refers to fair use as "a bit of a loophole for students and teachers".
This one gets a D-. It at least mentions the public domain, a concept left out of a number of the other copyright educational videos.
More botched fair use education by YouTube here.
Even scarier here.
Some hope from a copyright librarian here.
