It also incorporates Educational Fair Use as a way to make students aware of the rights and responsibilities they have when using others' works.

  • 4. Educational Fair Use
    • Is YOUR right to used copyrighted material without permission and under certain conditions
    • Four types of consideration mentioned in copyright law:
      • Nature of the use
      • Nature of the work used
      • Extent of the use
      • Economic effect
    • Two key questions judges ask
      • Did the unlicensed work transform the original by using it for a different purpose?
      • Was the material taken appropriately in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work and of the use?
  • 5. Educational Fair Use
    • Other suggestions for determining fair use:
      • Choose material relevant to the current project and its purpose
      • Provide attribution for the copyrighted material
      • Use only what is necessary for the educational purpose of the project
      • Be careful when incorporating mass media/pop culture copyrighted works
      • Students, learn to incorporate, modify, and re-present existing media
