      • The U.S. Congress first exercised its power to enact copyright legislation with the Copyright Act of 1790.
      • The authority to establish Copyright Law comes from the US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8.
      • In 2002, the United States revised and adapted exemptions for educational use of works to accommodate new "distance learning" technologies that allow teachers to reach students via communications networks like the Internet.
      • There has been and will continue to be a continual and successful adaptation of copyright law.
