Copyright & Fair Use

Important Information

Schools and educators are subject to the same copyright laws as everyone else.  Be sure to protect yourself and the district.  This is especially true if you are managing your own website.

 

"What can my students and I freely use in our lessons,presentations, workshops, newsletters, reports, and Web sites, and whatis protected by copyright? Many educators interpret fair use as freedomto use copyrighted materials as long as their use is restricted toinstructional purposes. Are they correct in that belief? Not exactly!Learn how the law really works."

Education World presents aseries on copyright answers to those questions and more.  We'veincluded links to the series and other links that provide you withinformation to this important issue.
