The Ways is a production of the Wisconsin Media Lab. It's about learning through traditions and language. Filmed on location, the segments include the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, the Ho-Chunk Nation, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican. There's a wide range of topics, very useful for K-12 teachers.

Latest ruling in the Google Books vs. the Authors Guild about the scanning project. Various cases have been taken to court over the past 10 years or so with a variety of results.

The article lists the 4 factors for fair use and does a good discussion of the case that appears correct to my limited understanding. Worth bringing up in class.
