  1. 1. Copyright crash course<br />Itzahamara Moses<br />EDTC 6340.62<br />Fall 2002<br />
  2. 2. Using Materials from the Internet<br />
  3. 3. Common Assumptions<br />Copyright laws govern what you may find on the internet<br />People assume that if found online it is public domain.<br />Law used to protect published works only if they displayed proper copyright notice.<br />Law has changed; no publication of notice is required.<br />Simply posting online and saving creates a copyrighted work.<br />
  4. 4. Licenses to use Internet Materials<br />Boundaries are vague<br />An author reasonably assumes that work will be forwarded, printed, copied or even used for the basis of other works.<br />Does not mean they give consent to commercial use without permission.<br />Spell out in detail what rights the author of the work wants readers to have.<br />You may attach a Creative Commons express license to your work.<br />Let’s others know you want your work to be part of the creativity.<br />Implied Licenses<br />Express Licenses<br />
  5. 5. Fair Use<br />Application to non profit educators is not decided<br />Where fair use is in question, implied rights may be broader.<br />Opt for materials with express rights.<br />Search for Creative Commons licensed works<br />Limit materials to those intended for use by educators and students.<br />
  6. 6. Fair Use<br />
  7. 7. What is Fair use?<br />Deciding whether use of a work is considered fair, <br />Use a variety of sources to acquire permission to use a person’s work.<br />Libraries offers millions of licenses as well as many Creative Commons licensed works available on line.<br />If you cannot rely on library, CC licenses, or free work, get permission by purchasing a license.<br />
  8. 8. Determining Fair use<br />Use the Four Factor Fair Use test<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 have on the market for the original or for permissions if the use were widespread.<br />To determine fair use, use guidance from a checklist.<br />
  9. 9. The TEACH Act<br />
  10. 10. What is the TEACH Act?<br />Became law in 2002<br />Is a scope of an educator’s rights to display works and make copies <br />“an educator may show or perform any work related to the curriculum, regardless of the medium, face-to-face in the classroom”<br />“ the same educator would have to pare down some of those materials to show them to distant students … audiovisual works and dramatic musical works may only be shown as clips”<br />
