As we continue to champion and support open access and open process platforms and practices, I think it is also important that we are also operating with a sound understanding of the copyright and fair use provisions within which we need to operated. I am in the process of pulling together a number of resources, and will post a few here for everyone to look at.
As Patricia Aufderheide suggested at ELI, this is really an issue of standards that need to be worked out with practices, and that a solid strategy for moving forward is for communities of practice to establish and publish carefully-considered guidelines. The Society for Cinema and Media Studies has created such guidelines, and I think this is a useful place to start.
