Exemptions in U.S. Copyright Law for Education
Are you an instructor or faculty member? Are you planning to become an instructor or teacher in higher education or K-12 education? If so, you will need at least a basic understanding of copyright law and the exemptions in the law that allow for educational reuse of copyrighted materials.
Join the Center for Advancement of Digital Scholarship, or CADS, for the first workshop in the 2017 Fall Interactive Copyright Workshop Series to explore the exemptions in U.S. copyright law that apply to education. We will discuss:
- Specific exemptions related to face-to-face and online education
- Fair use (or Section 107 of U.S. copyright law) and how it applies to both face-to-face and online setting when specific exemptions do not apply
- Other areas of the law that may affect the legality of reusing and sharing copyrighted works, such as privacy laws, FERPA, HIPPA, trademark laws, and licensing restrictions.
In addition to the topics discussed, participants will be instructed on how to use online tools to help with making critical decisions in reusing copyrighted materials.
