In Print II an excellent question came up about copyright and fair use. The College Art Association (CAA) has some excellent resources on the question (which is complex).

We will talk about fair use, creative commons and case law in both Print I and Print II when we use photographic techniques later this semester. There are some excerpts from this article in an older post on this blog.
