Can a library put a professor’s reading list of book chapters and other excerpts from academic monographs on e-reserve for students in the class, without permission from the copyright holder?
That’s been in dispute since 2008, when publishers sued Georgia State University for doing just that. A District Court judge ruled that almost all of the scores of uses were fair, but also set an arbitrary standard of 10% for allowable quoting from academic monographs.
At this point it’s fairly well known that women are routinely underrepresented – and misrepresented – in major motion pictures. But we’d like to believe that in this modern era of equality, things are finally changing for the better. Not so, says the USC Annenberg Media, Diversity, & Social Change Initiative’s latest report.
Professor Philip Napoli tackled the question of media impact assessment on a recent podcast of the MIT Comparative Media Studies/Writing Center. Napoli, who teaches journalism and media studies at Rutgers, published “Measuring Media Impact” for the Norman Lear Center in October of last year.
Not too long ago, media impact expert Jessica Clark was leading the Future of Public Media project here at the Center for Media & Social Impact. After that, she helped develop and launch the innovative multimedia production Localore as AIR’s media strategist.
Now she’d like you to meet her next project: Dot Connector Studio, a multiplatform media strategy and production firm that helps creators produce innovative experiences, conduct field research, and design for impact.
