I'd like to suggest an SCMS panel dealing with evolving creative practice in
compilation films (or, as we now call them, "remixes"). Issues could
include: parallels between analog/digital practices; emerging open-source
platforms for video editing, making it easier to produce remix/compilation
work; resistance to/acceptance of understanding compilational work as
creative, in comparison with "original" work; evolution of fan culture into
a culture of critique. And more! Thanks for any/all interest!

Order *Reclaiming Fair Use: How to Put Balance Back in Copyright*, with
Peter Jaszi. University of Chicago Press,

Sample *Reclaiming Fair Use! * <>

Early comments on *Reclaiming Fair Use:*

"The Supreme Court has told us that fair use is one of the "traditional
safeguards" of the First Amendment.  As this book makes abundantly clear,
nobody has done better work making sure that safeguard is actually effective
than Aufderheide and Jaszi.  The day we have a First Amendment Hall of Fame,
their names should be there engraved in stone.  --Lewis Hyde, author, *Common
as Air: Revolution, Art and Ownership*

“*Reclaiming Fair Use* will be an important and widely read book that
scholars of copyright law will find a ‘must have’ for their bookshelves. It
is a sound interpretation of the law and offers useful guidance to the
creative community that goes beyond what some of the most ideological books
about copyright tend to say.”—Pamela Samuelson, University of California,
Berkeley School of Law

"If you only read one book about copyright this year, read *Reclaiming Fair
Use.  *It is the definitive history of the cataclysmic change in the custom
and practice surrounding the  fair use of materials  by filmmakers and other
groups."  --Michael Donaldson, Esq. Senior Partner, Donaldson & Callif, Los
