Teachers' lack of fair use education hinders learning, sets bad example

"Not a single teacher interviewed for a recent study on copyright reported receiving any training on fair use."

"Copyright confusion is running rampant in American schools, and not just among the students."

That's the conclusion of a new report from the Center for Social Media at American University. The report indicates that media literacy is now being compromised by unnecessary copyright restrictions and lack of understanding about copyright law.
