Week Three Discussion: Copyright

Discussion Board Overview

  • Examine the hypothetical scenario below and craft an initial post

Discussion Board Goals

  • To recognize the intellectual property issues commonly encountered in connection with the creation and publication of content
  • To identify the elements of copyright infringement
  • To understand the limitations of the fair use defense


Initial post (at least 400 words of thoughtful analysis):

Analyze the following hypothetical scenario, and craft an initial post. Upload your post to the Week Three Discussion Board on FSO.

You are preparing a digital press release for a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of music. Your boss gives you a photograph of Irving Berlin (published in 1921) to use in your press release. He also gives you a ten-second clip from an old video created for the company by a freelance videographer. The original video had been used as part of a media kit.

  • What exclusive rights are granted to the copyright owner under the Copyright Act?
  • Fair use is a defense to a claim of copyright infringement. Discuss the four factors that the courts consider when determining whether the use of a copyrighted work falls under the fair use defense.
  • Do you have any concerns about using the photograph of Irving Berlin in your press release? Why or why not?
  • Do you have any concerns about using the ten-second video clip? Why or why not?
  • As a communications professional, do you need to be concerned with violating copyright law when posting, tweeting or pinning content? Why or why not?

Discussion Guidelines

  • Initial post must be at least 400 words
  • Any outside sources must be properly cited
  • Check for spelling and grammar errors before uploading your posts
