    There is a mistaken belief that all classroom use of copyrighted content is protected as educational use. While some protections for educational uses are carved out in the copyright law, it is not a blanket permission. Additionally, there are copyright issues for the works that your students are creating in your classroom, especially when those works are publicly shared online. Join us for a quick primer on the basics of copyright law, and a deeper discussion about what you can — and cannot — do with copyright in the classroom.

    Fair use is a powerful provision in the copyright law that gives us the right to use copyrighted works without permission of the owners under certain circumstances. Those circumstances are common in both teaching and scholarship, yet fair use remains an underused and misunderstood right. Learn about fair use, learn ways to help make fair use determinations, and get your fair use questions answered.
