Streaming Video Online: Think About This First

23 02 2011

I’m sure many of you have read last week’s Inside Higher Ed’s interesting, if somewhat confusing, article entitled “Hitting Pause On Class Videos”,

In short, the story reports that the Association for Information and Media Equipment (AIME) is alleging that UCLA faculty members are infringing copyright by streaming entire (presumably) videos via their access protected course web sites. As I read the article, it appears as though UCLA is trying to defend this practice under Section 110(1), which only applies to traditional face to face (F2F) classroom settings. It is true that under that section an entire video can be show as long as it is lawfully made (p.s., rented movies are “lawfully made”).
