Content on the Web People assume that everything posted on the Internet is public domain – Wrong!! All internet postings are protected, as if they were published printed works. When an author posts anything on the internet, he or she impliedly grants a limited license to use the work (read, download, print out, forward, etc.)
Fair Use Answer these questions to decide if you need permission to use copyrighted material: Is the work protected? If the work is protected, has your campus already licensed rights for you to use the work? Is the work available freely on the open Web, and therefore covered by an implied license?
Four Factor Fair Use Test What is the character of the use? What is the nature of the work to be used? How much of the work will you use? What effect would this use have on the market for the original or for permissions if the use were widespread?
TEACH Act Copyright law provides educators with a separate set of rights in addition to fair use, to display (show) and perform (show or play) others' works in the classroom. These rights are in Section 110(1) of the Copyright Act and apply to any work, regardless of the medium. http://copyright.lib.utexas.edu/teachact.html
Getting Permission If the work you would like to use is protected, you need permission.
