    10. 11. --Section 107 Copyright Act of 1976
    11. 13. “ It not only allows but encourages socially beneficial uses of copyrighted works such as teaching, learning, and scholarship. Without fair use, those beneficial uses— quoting from copyrighted works, providing multiple copies to students in class, creating new knowledge based on previously published knowledge—would be infringements. Fair use is the means for assuring a robust and vigorous exchange of copyrighted information.” --Carrie Russell, American Library Association
    12. 14. Fair Use in Media Education Video
    13. 16. <ul><li>Educators can: </li></ul><ul><li>make copies of newspaper articles, TV shows, and other copyrighted works and use them and keep them for educational use </li></ul><ul><li>create curriculum materials and scholarship with copyrighted materials embedded </li></ul><ul><li>share, sell and distribute curriculum materials with copyrighted materials embedded </li></ul><ul><li>Learners can: </li></ul><ul><li>use copyrighted works in creating new material </li></ul><ul><li>distribute their works digitally if they meet the transformativeness standard </li></ul>
    14. 17. Transformative Use is Fair Use When a user of copyrighted materials adds value to, or repurposes materials for a use different from that for which it was originally intended, it will likely be considered transformative use; it will also likely be considered fair use. Fair use embraces the modifying of existing media content, placing it in new context.  --Joyce Valenza, School Library Journal
