    17. 17. The documents created by these negotiated agreements give them “the appearance of positive law. These qualities are merely illusory, and consequently the guidelines have had a seriously detrimental effect. They interfere with an actual understanding of the law and erode confidence in the law as created by Congress and the courts”<br /> --Kenneth Crews, 2001<br />Educational Use Guidelinesare NOT the Law!<br />
    18. 18. It’s time to replace old knowledge<br />with<br />accurate knowledge<br />
    19. 19. EVERYTHING <br />IS COPYRIGHTED<br />Any work of expression in fixed or tangible form<br />
    20. 20. Creative Control<br />The Copyright Act grants five rights to a copyright owner:<br />1. the right to reproduce the copyrighted work; <br />2. the right to prepare derivative works based upon the work; <br />3. the right to distribute copies of the work to the public; <br />4. the right to perform the copyrighted work publicly; and <br />5. the right to display the copyrighted work publicly. <br />
    21. 21. Owners May Control Copyright through the Licensing Process<br />
    22. 22. LOVE<br />HATE<br />Copyright law enables people to control the creative works <br />they produce<br />
    23. 23. LOVE<br />HATE<br />Violating Copyright Can Be Expensive<br />The Copyright holder may receive statutory damages for all infringements involved in the action… not less than $750 or more than $30,000 as the court considers just. [...] <br />When infringement was committed willfully, the court in its discretion may increase the award of statutory damages to a sum of not more than $150,000." <br />
    24. 24. EVERYTHING <br />IS COPYRIGHTED<br />..but there are exemptions<br />
    25. 25. --Section 107<br /> Copyright Act of 1976<br />The Doctrine of Fair Use<br />For purposes such as <br />criticism, comment, <br />news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), <br />scholarship or research<br />
    26. 26. The Doctrine of Fair Use<br />“It not only allows but encourages socially beneficial uses of copyrighted works such as teaching, learning, and scholarship. Without fair use, those beneficial uses— quoting from copyrighted works, providing multiple copies to students in class, creating new knowledge based on previously published knowledge—would be infringements. Fair use is the means for assuring a robust and vigorous exchange of copyrighted information.”<br />--Carrie Russell, American Library Association<br />

Is Your Use of Copyrighted Materials a Fair Use?<br />Did the unlicensed use “transform” the material taken from the copyrighted work by using it for a different purpose than that of the original, or did it just repeat the work for the same intent and value as the original?<br />Was the material taken appropriate in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work and of the use?<br />
