BASIC COPYRIGHT LAWS FOR TEACHERS

Five Basic Principles of Best Practices in Fair Use:

 

Educators can:

  1. make copies of newspaper articles, TV shows, and other copyrighted works and use them for educational use
  2. create curriculum materials and scholarship with copyrighted materials embedded
  3. share, sell and distribute curriculum materials with copyrighted materials embedded

 

Learners can:

  1. use copyrighted works in creatin new material
  2. distribute their works digitally if they meet the transformativeness standard.

 

What is Transformative 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," writes Joyce Valenza in the School Library Journal
