What's Legal YouTube: Fair Use

Those series of aggressive stupendous plays by Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are a must-see for every basketball junkie. However, the method of viewing them raises all kinds of exciting fair use questions. Yes, exciting.

You see, I have received no express (written, texted, telegraphed or otherwise) consent from the NBA to disseminate this footage of their basketball games. I doubt the editor of that YouTube video received similar permission as well. So, are we violating the NBA’s copyright of those images? Am I perfidious scoundrel unduly benefiting from the efforts of others?

The answer to all these questions and others is… it depends.

Copyright and fair use are the two uneasy brethren of innovation. The Association of Research Libraries succinctly identified how these two concepts so often at odds are required to spur creativity:

The goal of copyright law and policy is to foster the progress of science, the creation of culture, and the dissemination of ideas. Its best-known feature is protection of owners’ rights. But copying, quoting, and generally re-using existing cultural and scientific material can be a critically important part of generating new research and culture and promoting intellectual exchange.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
