    • What is Copyright? Fair Use, Ethics, and Digital Citizenship EDU 210 - Media and Technology Saturday, February 26, 2011
    • Copyright Is:
      • A property right attached to an original work of art or literature. It grants the author or creator exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, adapt, perform, or display the protected work.
      • U.S. Copyright Office - http://www.copyright.gov/
    • What is Protected?
      • A work that is
        • (a) original
        • (b) creative to a minimal degree and
        • (c) in a fixed or tangible form of expression
    • Works May Be Used Sometime
      • public domain -- work belonging to the public as a whole--government documents and works, works with an expired copyright or no existing protection, and works published over 75 years ago;
      • permission -- prior approval for the proposed use by the copyright owner;
      • legal exception -- use constitutes an exemption to copyright protection--parody, for example; or
      • fair use -- use for educational purposes according to certain restrictions.
    • What is Fair Use?
      • Allows educational use for criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research
      • Face to face instruction
        • More flexibility for students than teachers
      • U.S. Government Statement on Fair Use
        • http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html
    • Limits on Use of Copyrighted Material
      • 1. Purpose of use: Copying and using selected parts of copyrighted works for specific educational purposes qualifies as fair use, especially if the copies are made spontaneously, are used temporarily, and are not part of an anthology.
      • 2. Nature of the work: For copying paragraphs from a copyrighted source, fair use easily applies. For copying a chapter, fair use may be questionable.
      Limits on Use of Copyrighted Material
      • 3. Proportion/extent of the material used: Duplicating excerpts that are short in relation to the entire copyrighted work or segments that do not reflect the "essence" of the work is usually considered fair use.
      Limits on Use of Copyrighted Material
      • 4. The effect on marketability: If there will be no reduction in sales because of copying or distribution, the fair use exemption is likely to apply. This is the most important of the four tests for fair use (Princeton University).

      Limits on Use of Copyrighted Material
    • Why Should It Matter?
      • Ethics
      • - Teachers are examples. They should model the right thing.
    • Understanding of the Marketplace
      • Although there are many who will ‘gift’ their time, can we really expect authors and artists to work for no compensation? How are they then able to continue to improve their practice?
    • How Can I Find What I Need?
