Some Copyright Fun

What do you think about these uses?

PS 22 Chorus - Rolling in the Deep

Symphony of Science - We Are All Connected

(Symphony of Science may be of general interest to science teachers!)

Kids React to Avengers Trailer

(In general, I do recommend all the "Kids React", "Teens React", and "Elders React" videos! Fascinating media commentary.)

Extra credit (just because it is incredibly difficult to figure out _what_ this song borrows from, much less whether it's fair use):

DJ Earworm - United State of Pop 2011
