Transcript of Copyright and what it means

Copyright Public Domain Fair Use What does it all mean, and, what can I do about it? a set of exclusive rights granted to the author or creator of an original work, including the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work. Works are in the public domain if they are not covered by intellectual property rights at all, if the intellectual property rights have expired, and/or if the intellectual property rights are forfeited or unclaimed.

Anything before 1923 is public domain.
Most Government documents are public domain. Fair use is a doctrine in United States copyright law that allows limited use of copyrighted material without requiring permission from the rights holders, such as for commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching or scholarship. It provides for the legal, non-licensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author's work under a four-factor balancing test. Creative
Commons "Fair use in the educational setting is defined broadly but does not encompass all uses" Text: Up to 10 percent or 1,000 words of a copyrighted text may be used—whichever is less. An entire poem may be used if it's less than 250 words; for longer poems, a maximum of 250 words may be used.

Music and lyrics: Up to 10 percent of a copyrighted musical composition may be reproduced, but no more than 30 seconds of an individual composition.

Visual images: A photograph or illustration may be used in its entirety, but no more than five images by an individual artist or photographer. No more than 10 percent or a maximum of 15 images of a collective work may be copied.

Films and videos: Up to 10 percent of a copyrighted work or three minutes may be reproduced, whichever amount is smaller. when students use copyrighted material for "commentary, parody, news reporting and educational research", it is fair use Guidelines that have been used University of Texas System http://www.utsystem.edu/ogc/intellectualproperty/copypol2.htm So what is the answer for ensuring the freedom of expression, without infringing? 1. the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
2. the nature of the copyrighted work;
3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
4. the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

being producers - not just users.
