    48. 48. Copyright Policy #814<br />The Board emphasizes that the United States Code makes it illegal for anyone to duplicate copyrighted materials without permission, except as otherwise permitted by law. The Board attests that severe penalties are provided for unauthorized copying of audio, visual, software or printed materials unless otherwise permissible. The Board acknowledges the copyright owner’s exclusive rights to reproduce, prepare (alter), distribute, perform and display his/her work.<br />Areas for potential copyright infringement are defined through administrative guidelines. (i.e. copy machines, broadcast programs, distance learning, software, web publishing)<br />
    49. 49. Copyright Policy #814<br />The complexities of the law and the impracticality of supervising all District duplicating equipment require that each district employee becomes familiar with the copyright requirements and assume responsibility for adherence to this Board policy and the accompanying guidelines. Staff may make copies of copyrighted materials that fall within stated guidelines. Staff members who fail to follow this policy may be held personally liable for copyright infringement.<br />The guidelines for applying fair use of copyrighted material are provided.<br />
    50. 50. Copyright Policy #814<br />Employees should review the full policy on the web as it provides guidelines for Fair Use and a Frequently Asked Questions section.<br />Additional copyright resources are available on the WSD eToolbox.<br />
    51. 51. Software Installations Policy #814.1<br />In order to be compliant with copyright laws, all software-licensing agreements must be honored by District employees and students. This policy is to protect the District and its employees, administrators, and students from violating copyright laws.<br />The term “Software” includes any computer programs that physically reside on a computer or network.<br />The District’s Director of Technology shall maintain an updated license database to assure compliance with copyrights laws.<br />The District’s technology staff shall perform all software installations.<br />No student, employee or administrator shall install software on his/her own or District computers using the Wissahickon Network Services (WNS).<br />Employees, administrators and students are liable for the consequences of any illegal software installed on their assigned computers.<br />Unawareness of the content of a software agreement is not an excuse from prosecution or disciplinary action.<br />
    52. 52. Next Steps<br />Policies are available on the district web page www.wsdweb.org under About WSD  School Board  Board Policies<br />Employees should review the policies appropriate to their employee classification as the information provided in this presentation were the key points of each policy. More details are included in the full policies.<br />All employees should sign the BLUE AUP cards and the Software Licensing Acknowledgement Form which will be kept on file in the Personnel Department.<br />
    53. 53. Procedures for Students<br />A copy of the AUP with the student form attached should be distributed to students in homerooms the first week of school. Homeroom teachers should review and discuss the key points with their students.<br />Homeroom teachers should sign off on the cards that the discussion was held.<br />The policy and form should be sent home for parents and the student to sign.<br />Signed and completed forms should be kept on file in the school’s main office.<br />Cards that are not signed by parents and the student, or have not been returned to school, will result in the student’s network account being deactivated and will not have access to the computers and other technology. Parents that request no Internet be available to their child can be accommodated and the technology department will only turn off access to the Internet. Other appropriate access to the network will still be available.<br />Future forms should be distributed when student enter Grades 3, 6, and 9.<br />
    54. 54. Plagiarism and Copyright <br />What’s the difference?<br />Plagiarize – “to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source” http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/plagiarizing<br />Copyright- “the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell, or distribute the matter and form of something (as a literary, musical, or artistic work)”http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/copyright<br />
    55. 55. What is entitled to copyright protection?<br /> Copyright protection subsists in original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression. <br /> A person’s idea must take a form, which include books, music, plays, choreography, movies, sound recordings. <br /> 17 U.S.C. Section 102<br />
    56. 56. Rights of Copyright Owners<br />Copyright owners have exclusive rights to:<br /> -Reproduce the work<br /> -Distribute the work<br /> -Prepare derivative works<br /> -Publicly display the work<br /> -Publicly perform the work<br /> 17 U.S.C. Section 106<br />
    57. 57. Exceptions to Rights of Copyright Owners<br />Fair Use – Section 107<br />Displays and Performances in Face-to-Face Teaching and Distance Learning Environments (Section 110, TEACH Act)<br />Public Domain<br />Government works<br />
    58. 58. Face-to-Face Teaching, Direct Instruction, and Curriculum Connected – TEACH Act<br /> Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106, the following are not infringements of copyright:<br />performance or display of a work by instructors or pupils in the course of face-to-face teaching activities of a nonprofit educational institution, in a classroom or similar place devoted to instruction, unless, in the case of a motion picture or other audiovisual work, the performance, or the display of individual images, is given by means of a copy that was not lawfully made under this title, and that the person responsible for the performance knew or had reason to believe was not lawfully made;<br /> 17 U.S. Code 110 (1)<br />
    59. 59. Fair Use<br /> Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106,the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research,is not an infringement of copyright. <br />17 U.S. Code 107<br />
    60. 60. Four Factors: FACT SENSITIVE<br />In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include — <br />(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;<br />(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;<br />(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and<br />(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.<br />
    61. 61. Transformative Use<br /> Most important to the court’s analysis of the first factor is the “transformative” nature of the work. The question is “whether the new work merely supersede[s] the objects of the original creation, or instead adds something new, with a further purpose or different character, altering the first with new expression, meaning, or message.” <br />Bill Graham Archives v. Dorling Kindersley Ltd., 448 F.3d 605, 610 (2nd Circuit, 2006), quoting, Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc., 510 U.S. 569, 579 (1994). http://supreme.justia.com/us/510/569/<br /> Fairy Use Tale- http://etoolbox.wikispaces.com/copyright<br />
    62. 62. Requires Thinking<br />Student Projects/Teacher Instruction in confines of classroom compared to outside the classroom (home grown, creative commons, etc., get permission, fair use) (FLOW CHARTS)<br />Checklist for Fair Use<br />Materials marketed for teacher use, e.g., Teacher Manuals, workbooks, etc. do not fall within 107 or 110 exceptions<br />
    63. 63. Caution: Guidelines<br />The guidelines are not the law. <br />The guidelines are part of the legislative history of the copyright law, but do not have the force of law.<br />There are varying views of the importance of the guidelines. <br />
    64. 64. Being Sued and Damages <br />Good Faith Fair Use Defense <br />(2) In a case where the copyright owner sustains the burden of proving, and the court finds, that 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. In a case where the infringer sustains the burden of proving, and the court finds, that such infringer was not aware and had no reason to believe that his or her acts constituted an infringement of copyright, the court in its discretion may reduce the award of statutory damages to a sum of not less than $200. <br />17 U.S. Code 504 (c) (2)<br />
