Here’s an awesome use of a visual medium to convey a complex subject.
Bound by Law is a comic book created by the Duke Law School Center for the Study of the Public Domain to teach folks in an entertaining fashion about the principles and pitfalls of the "fair use" provisions of copyright law. The comic (available in PDF, HTML and print formats) tells the story of "Akiko," an independent filmmaker in New York trying to navigate the complicated legalities of copyright law as she attempts to film her original documentary. She struggles with fairly common issues faced by artists, like whether or not they face any liability for including incidental depictions of copyrighted images (like ads) and sounds (like commercial music) without paying the license-holder.
The comic also gives a nice, clear explanation of what the Creative Commons license is. (And they eat their own dog food — the work is licensed under a Creative Commons license.)
Certainly worth a look. I’d love to get ahold of the print version.
