Copyright for Teachers

What is Fair Use?

Fair use is an exception to copyright law that allows limited use of the original work

What is Creative Commons?

Creative commons is a nonprofit organization that lets creators share as much of their work as they like without giving away their copyrights

What is Standard copyright?

The original creator of the work has copyright rights that allow the creator to decide if the work can be used or adapted by others in any way

Why is Fair Use important for teachers?

We have learned in CEP 416 how easy it is to share ideas and work with others via the internet, so it is very important that teachers understand the boundaries of fair use and not infringe on any copyright laws.

4 criteria courts use to determine Fair Use

1) the purpose of your use

2) the nature of the copyrighted work in question

3) the amount of the portion taken from the original work

4) the effect of the use on the potential audience

A classroom example of fair use in the classroom is a teacher using an photocopying an exam from a book

How to stay updated on Fair Use and copyright laws

Teachers need to stay updated on the latest copyright laws and always check the materials they are using in class for possible copyright. Teachers can subscribe to blogs featuring the latest news on copyright laws which will be constantly updating to their RSS feeds. There are also numerous internet websites to get information on copyright laws.
