Educational fair use initiative at Harvard

Fair use-friendly best practices statements are gaining more adherents as people decide that some sort of coordination and theorization of existing practices is necessary to combat copyright owners' totalizing claims. Though they're no panacea, I've participated in one such project (about which more soon), and I consider my work with the Organization for Transformative Works to be in a similar vein.

Now Harvard's Berkman Center is working on educational fair use best practices. They have a discussion draft of the proposal up, and seek feedback. There may also be some job openings available, given that the project is planned to take several years.
