    A presentation and discussion for librarians and faculty: In the past four months, we have seen positive rulings in two major copyright cases brought against universities and their libraries, and the dismissal of a third. These rulings have confirmed the importance of fair use in higher education, and they suggest that libraries and faculty members should feel more confident embracing fair use for certain kinds of online activities. Come learn about these decisions ¿ we will review each briefly and also discuss the ARL Code of Best Practices in Fair Use ¿ and join a discussion about the opportunities they create.
