The Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia were sunset by CCUMC. The recommended guidelines are available from the Center for Social Media: Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries.

The Government Regulations & Public Policy Committee (GR&PP) of CCUMC recommended adopting the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, published in January 2012 to the CCUMC Board of Directors in December 2012. After discussion, the Board in turn adopted the recommendation. We believe that the Code is in the best interest of our membership in helping to clarify fair use. We encourage our members to apply its guidance when using media in a manner that addresses limitations and precautions as well as the practices that the Code finds reasonable under fair use. Of course these are only guidelines as each case may be unique; however, they hold greater weight because they are deemed acceptable by the community at large.

The GR&PP Committee also recommended that we sunset the Fair Use Guidelines, developed in 1998 based on changes in new technology, delivery and educational practices. While it served its purpose in providing direction for our members and others in the field, the Code, recent court cases and legislation, all make the Fair Use Guidelines obsolete in the prevailing networked online environment. We will retain the FU Guidelines and their supporting document in an archives section of Copyright Matters on our CCUMC web site. We acknowledge the work in developing the guidelines that remained a standard for over a decade. The CCUMC Board of Directors also adopted this recommendation in 2012.
