Copyright presentation

  1. 1. By: Yvette Barron<br />EDTC 6340.64<br />Copyright<br />
  2. 2. Public Domain<br />There is an abundance amount of information being made public through programs located on the world wide web (internet). <br />We post any knowledge (blogs) we have through the web for many to view and post responses. <br />
  3. 3. “Public Domain/Orphan Works”<br />Due to the Copyright Act, many “works” cannot be published for all to view. An abundance amount of information is not getting read due to this. Websites do not want to risk being penalized for copyright infringement of authors’ works. <br />
  4. 4. Copyright Laws<br />“Many people assume that everything posted on the internet is public domain”. NOT!!<br />We should presume that what we write will be viewed, and copied. <br />Once you have clicked the submit button, copyright protection is implied. <br />Therefore, we have protection of internet works: Express and Implied licenses.<br />
  5. 5. Cont.<br />
  6. 6. Infringement<br />Every individual is responsible for their own actions if they “copy” any postings without the authors permission.<br />Any individual who willfully infringes will experience harsh penalties. <br />Public libraries and school universities are liable for such actions that may occur with students.<br />In our TX Constitution, schools/universities will defend their students of being accused of infringement as long as they refrain from violating any other terms or policies. <br />
  7. 7. “Fair Use”<br />“Fair Use” plays a vital role as authors are now trying to make a profit on their works.<br />Getting scholarly information is now a challenge to the world as we are faced with great lengths in receiving a copy of an authors work. For some cases a payment is required.<br />When retrieving information, we always “click” on an “agreement notification”.<br />Furthermore, many more people now license their work to the public by attaching the Creative Commons license, which makes educational uses easier without worry of “fair use”. <br />
  8. 8. Rules of Public Domain*This is the policy in determining whether or not a work is public domain.<br />
  9. 9. Copyright for Educators<br />How can an educator minimize the use of copyright?<br />limit the use of materials copied for students<br />Limit access of web based materials (images, digital resources)<br />Repeatedly use materials that you will find useful for the students<br />Site your resources<br />
  10. 10. Four Factor Fair Use Test<br />*Items on the left are in favor of fair use.<br />*Items on the right are in favor of seeking permission from the owner of the work. <br /><ul><li>The works found in the center balances out a what is found in both types of works.
  11. 11. Works that states facts and/or are published are in favor of fair use while imaginative and/or unpublished works seek permission. </li></ul>Criticism<br />Commentary<br />News Reporting<br />Parody<br />
  12. 12. The TEACH Act<br />“Copyright laws provide educators with a separate set of rights in addition to fair use, to display and perform others’ works in the classroom”. <br />Due to the increase use of “digital technology” in the classroom, educators came to a halt as limitations were given on the use of materials they were providing in the classroom. The TEACH Act was approved in 2002.<br />The TEACH Act gives educators a broader range in accessing, presenting, and using authors’ works that would benefit in the curriculum. gives educators the authorization <br />Section 110 (2) gives educators the authorization in using a limited amount of audio visuals (movie clips) for classroom use.<br />
