My students have done some excellent work that I want to put on SchoolTube; however our local cable company takes care of the copyright for the music we use. They have four schools that broadcast and they are ultimately liable, so they foot the bill. Can I still put the pieces on SchoolTube if the copyright is covered by my cable provider?
Your cable provider pays for the copyright for cable casting your videos. It does not cover webcasting of videos. That"s an entirely different copyright license. If SchoolTube covers the license for anything that they make available on the web, then you would be ok. Just make sure SchoolTube agrees to cover your videos.
SchoolTube does not cover any copyrighted content, sorry. If you are interested in learning where to get some royalty free music to use in place of the copyrighted content, check out services like Soundzabound.com and sites with royalty free licensing.

I am in an active search for some "stuff" to use for our Sept 11th, tribute. I decided one of you might already have some inside track on that.
Please share - as I am sure many of us will honor this 10th anniversary.

For the 5th anniversary, one of my students did a piece with perspective. She looked at the "Where were you" moments from different generations:
December 7 & 8, 1942, November 22, 1963, January 28th, 1986, April 19th, 1995, and finally, September 11, 2001. She used radio and television press recordings from each president: "December 7th, 1941, a day which shall live in infamy...", "...reached out to touch the face of God", "Their legacy must be our lives." Then, she interviewed people who remembered those days and how it affected their lives. We were fortunate to have a custodian who was a freshman in high school in 1941. We had an English Teacher who was a 4th grader when Kennedy was assassinated, the same age as some of our students in 2001. There was a science teacher who was a sophomore in high school in 1986. Eventually, we began interviewing our students about their experiences on September 11. The piece was somber, but it spanned the generations. It was about 20 minutes long.
Those tragedies, as well as September 11, should be a part of the Presidential Libraries. You can probably find photos online at the library sites. There would be government owned photos of the event.

Do any of y’all have any assignments (written work / research / projects) that are good for copyright? My students are fully aware of copyright, but I would like to get them to do more work to reinforce what I am telling them about copyright. Right now it feels like “we can’t play music / use pictures that we want to use because MR. HOLMES won’t let us”, and not “we can’t play music / use pictures that we want to use because THE LAW won’t let us”. I want them to understand the process of how different groups GET permission to use copyright material.
Anybody got anything I could look at?
