Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts: Panel Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In early 2015, the College Art Association (CAA) published the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts, a set of principles addressing best practices in the fair use of copyrighted visual art material, and the result of an effort initiated by CAA in 2012. The code was developed through discussions with visual arts professionals including artists, art historians, educators, museum professionals, and editors, and reflects areas where consensus exists across these communities. The code elaborates on the application of fair use in broad areas of the visual arts, including museum uses (print and online exhibitions, catalogues, and related activities) and online access to archival material. Join the lead facilitators of the code, Peter Jaszi and Patricia Aufderheide, along with copyright specialists in the library, archive and museum space in a discussion about development of the code, its reception, and its application. How does the code differ or expand upon earlier efforts that museums have looked to when applying fair use to digital access to visual art material, including the AAMD Policy on the Use of "Thumbnail" Digital Images in Museum Online Initiatives (2011) and the VRA's Statement on the Fair Use of Images for Teaching, Research, and Study (2011)?
