week 1 - post 2 - response to Rose
When I was working as a Media Speicalist, I found the same thing that you described. Most teachers assume that because they are using in the classroom that they fall under the "fair use" umbrella. I found it interesting that "fair use is not a right but a defensible position." I am not sure how you interpret that but it seems like what one person believes is fair use may not be viewed that way by its creator which lands the user in a grey area. The way i recommended teachers avoid these grey areas is similar to what you described; I always suggested that they create their own or use student created images.
