      Mario A. Ortiz
      EDTC 6340.64
    • 2. Who owns what?
    • 3. Copyrights don’t manage themselves well
    • 4. Using materials from the Internet
    • 5. Some common assumptions are wrong
      Assume Noting
    • 6. Fair use of copyrighted materials
      Or not
    • 7. Who owns what?
      People need to know who owns what
      When you create your work you want to know who will have the rights in the finished work?
      Whom to ask for permission ?
      • identify the author or authors and contact one or more of them.
      • 8. ask whether they own the copyright or whether the work was work for hire.
      • 9. ask whether they have conveyed away any of their rights, and if so, to whom.
      The author is usually the owner
    • 10. Copyrights don't manage themselves well
      There are many aspects to effective management of your copyrights
      When you commercialize your works
      you can reserve the right to publicly archive your work
      are any costs involved?
      When you don't commercialize your works
      Think about how you like to use others works; give others the rights you yourself think are reasonable.
      Copyright's bloated bundle gives you the exclusive rights to make copies (any and all copies), to distribute your work (to the public or to even offer it to the public), to display and perform your work publicly - for your lifetime plus 70 additional years.
    • 11. Using materials from the Internet
      Many people assume that everything posted on the Internet is public domain
      • The law, however, has changed: neither publication nor a notice of any kind is required to protect works today.
      • 12. postings of all kinds are protected the same as published printed works.
    • The TEACH Act
      educators still have recourse to fair use to make copies, create derivative works, display and perform works publicly and distribute them to students.
      If you are an instructor these are some of the things you want to keep in mind
      • My institution is a nonprofit accredited educational institution or a governmental agency
      • 13. It has a policy on the use of copyrighted materials
      • 14. It provides accurate information to faculty, students and staff about copyright
      • 15. Its systems will not interfere with technological controls within the materials I want to use
      • 16. The materials I want to use are specifically for students in my class
      For additional information refer to :
    • 17. Fair use of copyrighted materials
      Why is fair use like this, and does it have to be this way?
      copyright owners and users and their lawyers agree that fair use is so hard to understand that it fails to provide effective guidance for the use of others' works today.
      In fact, no one strategy for acquiring legal authority to use others' works is enough today.
      We would all appreciate a clear, crisp answer to that one, but far from clear and crisp, fair use is better described as a shadowy territory whose boundaries are disputed, more so now than ever, since it applies in the online environment.
