Two books come to mind: "Copyrights and Copywrongs: The RIse of
Intellectual Property and How it Threatens Creativity" by Siva
Vaidhyanathan and another titled "Selling the Air" by I don't know.
And a really good online resource is "The Center for Social
Media" (
'Fair use' is of particular importance to my work, though sometimes I
slip and call it "free use." Not a good mistake when trying to make
a case for it... Also, I find that fair use cases are better
understood by following money trails than attempting to understand
interpretations of law; that mediamakers of means are quick to pay
for use even when they have a claim for fair; and that every time
this happens, those that can't pay are screwed...
