  1. 1. Copyright Crash Course<br />building on others’ creative expression<br />
  2. 2. The Public Domain and Orphan Works<br />Developing better tools to identify those works that actually are in the public domain.<br />Free those works that are in the public domain but not identified as such.<br />Orphan works by definition often lack sufficient information to identify their owners.<br />
  3. 3. Using materials from the Internet<br />Copyright protection is automatic: Neither a publication nor a notice of any kind is required to protect works today.<br />By posting an author impliedly grants a limited license for the use of the work.<br />Commercial use it’s not part of an implied license.<br />Implied licenses are vague. <br />
  4. 4. Fair use of copyrighted materials<br />Fair use is better described as a shadowy territory whose boundaries are disputed.<br />Any work published on or before Dec. 31, 1922 is now in the public domain.<br />Works published between Jan. 1, 1923 to Dec. 31, 1978 are protected 95 yrs. after published date.<br />After 1978 works are protected after 70 years from the date the author dies.<br />
  5. 5. Fair use of copyrighted materials<br />The four fair use factors:<br />What is the character of the use?<br />What is the nature of the work to be used?<br />How much of the work will you use?<br />What effect would this use have on the market for the original or for permissions if the use were widespread?<br />
  6. 6. The TEACH Act<br />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.<br />Checklist <br /><ul><li>Accredited Educational Institution
  7. 7. Materials are specifically for students
  8. 8. Only students will have access to materials.
  9. 9. Include a notice that materials are copyrighted.</li></li></ul><li>Getting Permission<br />Getting permission maybe difficult<br />A subscription license covers typical use<br />In music, the owner is usually the record label.<br />Writing a letter, calling, or emailing are appropriate ways to initiate contact.<br />You should be sure that the person giving you permission is authorized to do so.<br />If author, creator, or publisher is not obvious, your task may be more difficult.<br />
