  • Fair Use of Copyrighted Materials
  • What is Fair Use?
  • Liability
    Liability for Infringement
    A court can award up to $150,00 for each separate act of “willful infringement.”
    “Willful infringement” is when you know you were infringing on someone’s work. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.
  • Do you need permission to use a copyrighted work?
  • If the work is covered by an implied license --
    Has the owner of the work used a Creative Commons license to give the public the right to use the work in the way that you would like to use it?
    If you don’t have express or implied rights, do you want to exercise one of the owner’s exclusive rights?
    Is your use exempt or excused from liability for infringement?
  • The 4 “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.
  • The TEACH Act
    Became law in 2002.
    The TEACH Act covers works a teacher would show or play during class.
    It does not cover materials a teacher wants students to read, study, listen to, or watch on their own time out of the classroom.
