Defending academic fair use against publishers who won't quit

I'm sure you remember the publisher lawsuit against Georgia State University in 2008. Three publishers sued the university for 99 instances of copyright infringement in reproducing works for classroom use. GSU claimed fair use, and in 2012 <http://goo.gl/5ocLM> a federal district court ruled in its favor for 94 of the instances. The publishers are now appealing their massive defeat. 

David Hansen, Peter Jaszi, Pamela Samuelson, Jason Schultz, and Rebecca Tushnet have written a superb amicus brief in defense of GSU and academic fair use. I'm proud to be one of the scholars who signed the brief.

"A finding of fair use in this case not only furthers the underlying goals of scholarship and education - access to knowledge - but also the very purposes of the Copyright Act itself....[T]he Copyright Act means what it says when it specifically identifies 'teaching,' including 'multiple copies for classroom use,' as an illustrative example of fair use...."

Hey +Bob Novella, I think you'll enjoy this!
 
A Boy and His Atom

How do you make the world's smallest movie? By moving atoms, one at a time. Certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, this stop motion animation made by IBM nanophysicists only lasts 60 seconds and shows a tiny atomic "boy" jumping on an atomic trampoline and playing with his ball atom, magnified 100 million times. It took 242 frames, each made by a scanning tunneling microscope that weighs 2 tons and operates at -268 degrees Celsius (or 450.5 degrees below zero on the Fahrenheit scale). A needle comes within 1 nanometer of each atom (actually diatomic carbon monoxide), grabs and drags it across the surface of a tiny chip to a new location..you can hear the dragging sound in the "behind the scenes" movie.

Why was this movie made? According to Moore's Law, chip performance doubles every 18 months, as the individual transistors become smaller. Currently, it takes about a million atoms to store individual bits of data, but IBM scientists see that number shrinking to 12. At this size, you could fit every movie made on your iPhone. Moving individual atoms precisely becomes important at these tiny dimensions. Hey, scientists like to have fun too! And, as Andreas Heinrich says, if a thousand kids watching A Boy and His Atom decide to go into science instead of law, that's a win for #STEM . Sorry, lawyers, you had Law and Order :)

Story

Internet cheerleader. I also go by Nena.
Introduction
Hey there, I am Helena, but please call me Nena.
I am a Library and Information Science student and information junkie.

If I have circled you here is probably because you are a major geek who posts about awesome shtuff. - Probably. -

I used to have a lot of free time when I was working only as a Teaching Assistant, but these days I have two different internships plus some volunteer work on a junior company so I don't exactly spend as much time on Google+ anymore.
Bragging rights
I'm prettier than my twin sister. But not really.
