Week 1 - MAC 613 - Response to Fary
Fary, Your post is really interesting and makes a lot of great points. When I was in Panama, my experience was similar, there are street vendors all over selling bootlegged copies of the latest movies and music. It is hard to see who benefits from these arrangements.
You also delineate a the most common myth that I have observed among educators. Many believe that classroom use is acceptable because they heard somewhere that fair use covers education. I think the videos this week gave a very clear view of how this is not true. I think that it provides a challenge for educators to think of solutions while working within the copyright framework and following the law.
