Copyright for Activists and Artists Links

This is supplemental materials from”What is Fair, Free, and Available, and How to Make Sure it Lasts”, a workshop I led with Radical Reference at the Anarchist Bookfair on June 6th, 2009 in Portland, OR. The Fair Use Analysis handout was copied from Carrie Russell’s Complete Copyright: An Everyday Guide for Librarians. If you would like to check out this book, Multnomah County Library carries it.

The following are examples that show how copyright is being used to make profits and oppress the public:
