  • 6. The public domain and orphan works
    The University of Texas is developing better tools to identify works that actually are in the public domain.
    UT is developing best practices to define reasonable searches for copyright owners of different types of works.
  • 7. The public domain and orphan works
    Most orphan works will remain outside the digital environment because they often lack sufficient information to identify their owners.
  • 8. Using materials from the internet
    Anything posted on the internet is automatically copyrighted.
    Anyone who posts information on the web knows his or her works will be viewed and most likely used in one way or another. This is an implied license to use the material.
  • 9. You can create an express license by attaching a Creative Commons license. This allows people to use your information as long as they follow the terms of the license.
  • 10. Liability
  • 11. Individuals can be liable for their own actions when they copy and distribute others' copyrighted works without permission.
  • 12. Liability for Posting Infringing Works
  • 13. Universities and libraries can also be liable for the actions of their employees doing their jobs and possibly students who access the Internet through university machines.
  • 14. Liability for Posting Infringing Works
  • 15. This means that universities must pay attention to what their network users are doing, take effective measures to inform them about their responsibilities, and promptly investigate complaints of infringement.
  • 16. Penalties for infringement
  • 17. Harsh penalties:
  • 18. What is fair use?
    What is the character of the use?
    What is the nature of the work to be used?
  • 19. What is fair use?
    How much of the work will be used?
    What effect would this use have on the market for the original or for permissions if the use were widespread?
  • 20. 3 Questions
  • 21. Do I need to get permission?
  • 22. Is the work protected?
    Do you have a license?
    Is the work available freely on the open Web, and therefore covered by an implied license?
  • 23. The 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.
    The TEACH Act became law in 2002.
  • 24. How do I get permission?
    Getting permission can be difficult. There are numerous avenues an educator can take to get permission for using copyrighted materials
