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 freedom to use copyrighted materials as long as their use is restricted to instructional purposes. Are they correct in that belief? Not exactly! Learn how the law really works."

Education World presents a series on copyright answers to
those questions and more.  We've included links to the series and other links that provide you with information to this important issue.
