“This book cuts right to the heart of uncertainties about how copyright and fair use apply in the classroom—confusions that block many valuable pedagogical interventions. Hobbs offers the information straight, addressing common misperceptions and laying out the current understandings of intellectual property law in clear, engaging prose.”
Henry Jenkins, Provost's Professor of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Art
University of Southern California
"This long-awaited book is exactly what has been needed to relieve educators’ anxieties about the legality of using copyrighted materials during instruction and presentations. In addition to answering questions about fair use practice in an easy-to-understand manner, Hobbs offers examples of how Internet and communications technologies support essential literacy and communication skills in 21st-century classrooms. This slender text is a must-read for every educator independently or as a professional development choice."
Diane Lapp, Distinguished Professor of Education

"This book is provocative, readable, and well written. It will make educators think about their practices and framework. Recommended."
Library Media Connection magazine, November/December 2010
The graduate course I teach for K-12 teachers earning their MA in Ed degree addresses digital media and online learning. This text has been officially adopted as recommended for the course because is fills a gap in addressing confusion about copyright and how and when to use it. The content in this text is current, relevant, and directly applicable for classroom teachers.
