How Copyright and Fair Use Impact Third Party Captioning for Educational Video

The prevalence of online video in the past few years has led to an incredible virtual library of resources on pretty much every topic you could imagine. It is no surprise that because of this, educational institutions have taken to utilizing YouTube videos (as well as other online video sources) as course material. One of the great challenges of using videos that you don’t own is that accessibility laws require most educational institutions (as well as government programs and other industries) to provide closed captions for video content. This is where copyright law can interfere.

This webinar is presented by Blake Reid, who is an Assistant Clinical Professor in Technology Policy and Telecom Law at Colorado Law as well as the Director of the Samuelson-Glushko Technology Law & Policy Clinic at Colorado Law. He earned his J.D. from Colorado Law and his LL.M in Advocacy with distinction from Georgetown Law. He has prepared an in-depth discussion on the conflict between copyright law and captioning law, focusing on the legality of captioning videos that you don’t own. Topics covered include:

  • Captioning laws and regulations
  • The conflict between captioning and copyright
  • Statutory exemptions
  • Fair use
  • The future of copyright and captioning
