The legal criteria for “fair use” is further defined as follows:

    In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
  1. the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
  2. the nature of the copyrighted work;
  3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
  4. the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

In 2008, Coldplay released the album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which eventually won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in 2009. The day after Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends were nominated for seven Grammy Awards, guitarist Joe Satriani filed suit claiming that the song Viva la Vida violated the copyright on Satriani’s song If I Could Fly from his 2004 album Is There Love in Space.

Listen carefully to both songs.

Do you feel that Coldplay’s song violated Satriani’s copyright or do you feel that the quotation falls under any of the “fair use” exceptions?
Explain your answer.

Write thoughtful statements and questions. The goal of the discussion is to learn from one another and share unique perspectives. If you simply respond with “I agree” or “I disagree”, then that doesn’t keep the conversation going. Spend some time thinking about what points you agree or disagree with and write about those. If you want to know why someone feels a certain way, ask them some questions to stimulate the discussion.

Participate throughout the entire discussion period. The value of discussion comes into play when everyone participates throughout the entire discussion period. Check back for new posts from your classmates. Try not to post before the discussion period begins so that you know exactly what your instructor expects. Try not to post near the end of the discussion period because other students may not have enough time to respond.

Please post any questions/concerns at WK 9 Questions/Concerns regardingthis weeks discussion.
It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor if clarifications or assistance is needed with course content. Your instructor is available and approachable but is not a mind reader.
