Transcript of Copyright and Fair Use for Educators

Copyright and Fair Use What You Need To Know Why do I as an educator need to know about copyright and Fair Use? Media Literacy is embedded in the job. You and your students access, evaluate, and communicate in a variety of forms. What do educators need to know about copyright? Copyright provides protection to the owners of creative works. In order to use copyrighted material without Fair Use, You have to get permission from the owner of the copyright. Really??? What should I do? People create and build on the works of others. Permission is not always possible or practical. So . . . Fair Use provides more flexibility in the use of copyrighted material. It sometimes seems a little foggy . . . You don't need 20, just 4! Will the copyrighted material be changed by my use? Is the kind and amount of copyrighted material appropriate? Will the use of the copyrighted material cause the owner economic harm? Am I acting reasonably and in good faith in using the copyrighted material? Fair Use Coverage in Education Fair use in education covers copyrighted material used in media literacy lessons, in preparing curriculum lessons, in sharing media literacy curriculum materials, in creating academic and creative work, and in developing audiences for student work. What should I do when I want to use copyrighted material? Check the copyright license to see what the copyright owner specified. Get permission when possible and practical. Follow Fair Use when not. Always give attribution! Use Creative Commons to find material whose owners allow its use. But soon it starts to clear . . . Educators can use copyrighted material to plan, implement, and teach lessons under Fair Use. Use material that is connected to your educational goal. Make sure the amount of material you use is appropriate. Make sure the material is properly cited and attributed. Make sure the use of the material will not cause economic harm to the owner of the copyright. Where can I get help? Creative Commons - a nonprofit corporation
http://creativecommons.org/ Creative Commons can help you copyright your own creative work and find work whose owners allow its use. How can I copyright my own creative works? Get a license through Creative Commons. Every creative commons license:

* allows the owners of the copyrighted material to retain their copyrights.

* allows the owners of the copyrighted material to share their work with others.

* allows the owners to get credit for their work.

* works around the world and lasts as long as the copyright lasts. How do I find material that has a Creative Commons license? Search the internet for material with a Creative Commons license. Check the license restrictions before using the material and be sure to provide attribution! Photo by celestehopkins Photo by emdot Photo by Chicago 2016 Photos Photo by Chris Ems What next?
