    3. 3. It is acceptable to make a copy of an article in the library and then make multiple copies for your students.<br />False. <br />If you read an interesting article in the morning paper, you may copy it to distribute; this falls under the Fair Use Act as a ‘spontaneous use’. <br />If you have an article that was published long enough ago that you could have acquired permission before distributing copies, then it is considered ‘planned use’ and is not acceptable use.<br />True or False?<br />True<br />False<br />Don’t know<br />

Court rulings in 1991 and 1996 (1991 Basic Books, Inc. v. Kinko&apos;s Graphics Corporation; 1996 Princeton University Press v. Michigan Document Services, Inc.) determined this untrue.<br />Permission must be obtained for each article, book chapter and image. Copyright permission for course packs is generally one academic year.<br />Course packs<br />
    32. 32. Common items in an eCourse pack are digital images of scanned documents, scanned book chapters, and PDFs collected from journal websites.<br />These items need to be checked for copyright and permission for use must be acquired.<br />Use Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and campus resources (library staff) to help identify pieces in existing e-course packs which are not part of the annual copyright license.<br />As with traditional course packs, copyright is valid for one academic year.<br />eCourse packs<br />
