Educators and students have vast, rich resources available to them online, but few teachers or educational leaders really know what uses of digital material are lawful.

In Copyright Clarity: Fair Use and 21st Century Learning, Renee Hobbs, one of America's top media literacy experts, provides a set of principles that clarify how copyright law and the doctrine of fair use apply to 21st-century learning. This book dispels the misconceptions and myths that have contributed to concerns about the educational use of materials related to mass media, popular culture, and digital media and helps educators apply the principles of fair use to the most common classroom scenarios.

"This book cuts right to the heart of uncertainties about how copyright and fair use apply in the classroom-confusions that block many valuable pedagogical interventions. Hobbs offers the information straight, addressing common misperceptions and laying out the current understandings of intellectual property law in clear, engaging prose." -- Henry Jenkins, Provost's Professor of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Art
"This long-awaited book is exactly what has been needed to relieve educators' anxieties about the legality of using copyrighted materials during instruction and presentations. In addition to answering questions about fair use practice in an easy-to-understand manner, Hobbs offers examples of how Internet and communications technologies support essential literacy and communication skills in 21st-century classrooms. This slender text is a must-read for every educator independently or as a professional development choice." -- Diane Lapp, Distinguished Professor of Education
"This book is provocative, readable, and well written. It will make educators think about their practices and framework. Recommended." -- Suzanne Libra
