    • Answer these three questions to decide whether you need permission to use a copyrighted work.
    • Is the work protected?
    • If the work is protected, has your campus already licensed rights for you to use the work?
    • Is the work available freely on the open Web, and therefor covered by an implied license?
  • 8. The four fair use factors:
    • What is the character of the use?
    • What is the nature of the work to be used?
    • How much of the work will you use?
    • What effect would this use have on the market for the original or for permissions if the use were widespread?
