Merchandise Description

Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), the rights licensing expert, has released a short animated video designed to help people understand copyright law.


Copyright Basics is a six-and-a-half minute video that follows the dashing “Jim T. Librarian” as he explains the importance of copyright to a co-worker. In this first installment, Jim helps his co-worker Jill understand why she shouldn’t distribute published content without first checking to see if the company has the rights to do so.  He goes on to explain the basics of copyright, what is and isn’t covered under U.S. copyright law, how a copyright is created, and why copyright is important.  Finally, Jim tackles some of the more confusing issues such as “what is fair use,” how the “first sale” doctrine works, and why attribution isn’t always enough — and he does it all in less than seven minutes!
