If you're creating new media, from podcasts and video to blogs, you need to understand the "fair use" provisions of the copyright law--and that's easier said than done. The provisions, which allow you to use portions of some works without permission or fees, confuse many creators of new media material. Here's a transcript from "Ask the Experts: Demystifying Fair Use," an online dialogue co-sponsored by OneWorld, a global information network, and the Center for Social Media at American University. Patricia Aufderheide, director of the center, and Maura Ugarte, a graduate associate there, field the questions and offer advice.
