Teaching Copyright provides lessons and ideas for opening your classroom up to discussion, letting your students express their ideas and concerns, and then guiding your students toward an understanding of the boundaries of copyright law.
Fair Use in Libraries: The Infographic embeddable infographic, developed by the Association of Research Libraries and American University’s College of Law and School of Communication, with funding from the Mellon Foundation, illustrates how librarians navigate in a sea of copyrighted material, and which situations most often trigger fair use.
Quote from article:"Fair use is a US legal doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders."----"Examples of fair use in United States copyright law include ***commentary***, search engines, ***criticism***, ***parody***, ***news reporting***, ***research***, and" ***teaching***.
Fair use is the right to use copyrighted material without permission or payment under some circumstances—especially when the cultural or social benefits of the use are predominant. It is a general right that applies even in situations where the law provides no specific authorization for the use in question—as it does for certain narrowly defined classroom activities.
