Fair Use: Can I repost media placements online?

The question no one wants to answer, but I seem to have been getting a lot lately:  “What are the best practices for posting videos online?”  I am not going to pretend to be a lawyer*, but I will give you a couple of trusted sources:  The Program on Information Justice & Intellectual Property and The Center for Social Media.  Check out their video and review their code of best practices, downloadable below the video.

*It should be noted that lawyers will tell you to always seek licensing of content unless you specifically ask them to exercise your “Fair Use” rights.
