[Athen] colleges that share transcripts or captions?

How do you feel that the purchased for “personal use” element fits in with the idea of sharing?

Hi Karen,

I read through the new LOC guidelines that Ron sent the link for this am. If a copyright owner (as defined in the Chaffee Amendment) does not make their AV/Multimedia material accessible (captioning and/or descriptive oration), a third-party may do so without obtaining direct consent if used for educational purposes or if purchased through normal means for personal use, without violating copyright statutes or rights.

Because this is at the federal level, it supercedes state codes. Sharing can now occur, if for educational purposes and students with documented sensory or print disabilities, without fear of copyright violation.

Although there are some that are disappointed with the limitations that are still in place, I think that this is a huge step in the right direction.

Kind Regards,

Hi -
Does anyone know of a state that shares captions or transcripts between colleges? I seem to remember that one did, but I don't know how they got around copyright infringement.
We are requesting funding from the state for captioning that could be used by all 17 community colleges in the state. It would really help our request if we could say that we will share the captions or transcripts (if that's not a copyright violation).
Anyone have any suggestions?
