There is a very interesting video called "A fairy(y) Use Tale" on Youtube  by 
The Stanford Fair Use project. Two-three seconds worth of multiple  Disney 
videos are used to tell what copyright, fair use, etc. is. 
It's interesting how it's done with just snippets of these videos.  Sometimes 
just one word from each movie, or a few words are joined  together to make 
sentences teaching about copyright. The disjointed feeling it  might give would 
be alleviated if a script of the video was given to  viewers beforehand.
