UCLA Decides To Put Course Videos Back Online; Countdown To Lawsuit Begins...

from the 3...-2...-1.... dept

Last month, we wrote about how the Association for Information Media and Equipment (AIME) had threatened UCLA with copyright violations for allowing professors to post videos online for students to view. This resulted in UCLA pulling down those videos -- even though the university said it believed it had a very strong fair use case. Since pulling down the videos, the two sides have been talking. However, even without an agreement, UCLA has decided to put the videos back online for the next quarter. Given this, I'm guessing that it won't be long before AIME files a lawsuit, so we might get an interesting case over fair use in educational settings...
