    15. 15. A student borrows portions of several copyright works to create a parody of movie trailers (using portions of current movies and popular music) to complete a classroom assignment.

    16. 16. May a faculty member use an off-air recording of important historical event (e.g., Challenger disaster, Obama Inauguration) even if same media is available for rent (can be licensed) commercially.<br />
    17. 17. May ancillary materials provided by textbook publisher be used in class whether or not the accompanying textbook is adopted? Wouldn’t fair use enable instructor to use portions of materials without infringing on Copyright? <br />What if use is online in learning management system?<br />
    18. 18. Faculty member wants to show film to student film club, discussion to follow. Showing supports college diversity initiative. Distributor lists $250 rental (license) fee. College library owns film. <br />Can library copy be used legally for club showing? Covered under fair use?<br />

    21. 21. Faculty member locates several images (on web) that she wants to use online in course (housed in LMS). The images have no copyright notice. Some from Flickr, some from Google images. May she use the images without seeking permission from copyright owners? <br />
    22. 22. Faculty member’s son plays in a band. They play popular music (Beatles, etc.) and have recorded a version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Faculty member has permission from son to use recording in a PowerPoint presentation used at “college nights” to promote college. <br />Legal use?<br />
    23. 23. Faculty member teaches programming, creates code for class during office hours. She wants to share on Internet via <br />Who owns the code? College or faculty member? Instructor wants to use MIT open source license but wants assurance she has legal right to do so.<br />
    24. 24. May a faculty member retain work by one of her students and use it as an example (good or bad) in subsequent semesters without specific permission from the student who created the work?<br />
    25. 25. May a faculty member use an editorial cartoon from a local newspaper to generate discussion in an online course without seeking/obtaining permission from the publisher/copyright owner?<br />
