Transcript of Copyright for Educators

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli What is copyright? Some Copyright Questions Answered Yes! Only because we have a Public Performance Site License. We pay a fee to have a license to play most movies during the school day and also for Student Council events. You can check to see if the movie in question is covered by visiting: www.movlic.com/k12 Can I play movies in the classroom during recess time or parties? Unfortunately no. Fair use states that you can use the program for 10 days after the recording was made, but must be destroyed 45 days after it was recorded.
http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/videotape-classroom-copyright-law-29958.html I have a video recorded from a T.V. show that I play each year, is this okay? The best practice is to use copyright free music from someplace like soundzabound (find through the IMC Reference shelf under badgerlink). My students want to add music to their project, how should I advise them? Fair use states that they can use a portion of a copyrighted piece of music for educational purposes, but simply putting it into a multimedia presentation does not fall under this fair use guideline. http://www.soundzabound.com/frequently-asked-questions The students looked on soundzabound and didn't like any music so they brought in their own music to add to their project. This is okay since they purchased the music legally, right? Part of my/our job is to teach students how to be upstanding citizens by following rules, regulations, and the law. It would be against my educational philosophy to allow students to blatantly infringe on copyright. But really Ms. Long, no one will know that it is being used, we won't publish to youtube or anything. If you have a copy purchased and it is on order than you may photo copy one chapter at a time. When the book arrives you must destroy the photo copied pages. If you don't have one on order, than no you cannot legally make copies of the material. We are short a text book for a student, can I photo copy another students text book since we are short one? The exclusive legal right given to a creator of a work Can I scan a book and put it in a smart notebook file or other format, including on my class webpage? It depends on what rights the publisher has given. For instance, the Greek and Latin roots book says that the material may not be reproduced by any means, electronically or printed in any way without permission. This to me means that it would not be okay to scan and put into a document. Well how can I show
the information? Document camera or have a copy for each student. There seems to be so many rules and things I can't do/use, what can I use? Visit our IMC reference shelf page to find all our subscription databases and online encyclopedias. We can use all the information on these sites.
http://www.mtsd.k12.wi.us/steffen/st_imc_rs.cfm What about online images, can I use anything I find on google? It all depends, some images on google have creative commons rights and you can reuse as long as you give credit, most of them do not. You need to find images that give permission for reuse and modification. Anything with a watermark is not intended for use by another person without permission.
