    • Copyright & Fair Use in Media Literacy Education By: Beatriz Falcon
    • What is Copyright?
      • Copyright is a protection given to creative works which gives limited property rights to creators.
    • What is Fair Use?
      • Fair use is a broadly written provision of the Copyright Act, which gives users the right to use copyrighted works without permission under certain circumstances.
      • Fair use is not something you must do, like asking for permission. Fair use is a right you have, provided by law, to reasonably use copyrighted works.
      • There are no “rules of thumb” to guide fair use. It is situational, based on context. This means that it is flexible.
    • Educational Use of copyrighted Material & Fair use
      • Under the Copyright Act, educational uses of copyrighted material are often considered fair use.
    • How to Make “Fair Use” of Material
    • Teacher Use: lesson planning & preparing & sharing curriculum materials
      • Copyrighted material can be integrated into curriculum materials
      • Use only what is necessary to meet the educational goal or purpose (this may be an excerpt or a whole work, depending on the educational goal or purpose).
      • Provide proper attribution wherever possible
    • Student Use: For own academic and creative work, and/or developing audiences
      • Students can incorporate, modify, and re-present existing media objects in their own classroom work.
      • Use of copyrighted material should not be a substitute for their own creative effort.
      • Proper attribution should be provided wherever possible.
      • If student work meets the transformativeness standard (new material is used for a different purpose than that of the original), it can be distributed to wide audiences.
      • In situations where students wish to share their work more broadly, teachers should model the permissions process.
    • Keep in Mind…
      • If you or the school has agreed to a license, then you should follow the terms and conditions of such license.
      • Being sued over the use of media for educational purposes is highly unlikely.
    • Creative Commons
      • Creative Commons is a nonprofit corporation that makes it easy for individuals to share and build upon the work of others, by providing free licenses to mark creative work, consistent with copyright rules.
      • Creators choose a set of conditions they wish to apply to their work (license types):
      • Attribution
      • Share alike
      • Non-commercial
      • No derivative work
    • Flickr
      • Flickr is an image sharing website that uses Creative Commons licensing. It is a great site for teachers to download images for their presentations and other works. Go to http://www.flickr.com , then do an “advance search” and click “only search CC licensing” to find images under Creative Commons licensing.
