Copyright for Educators

Copyright for Educators is a series of videos designed to help educators learn about what they can and can't do within the category of "Teaching" in the Copyright Act.

Under the Copyright Act, there is nothing more intriguing and exciting for educators than Fair Use. Fair Use is the concept that if you are doing something for the greater good of society, like teaching, then your needs supersede the ownership rights of the copyright holder under the Copyright Act. Teachers, and by association, students, can legally use music, websites, videos, images, and a wealth of copyrighted materials for the purposes of teaching, that wouldn't be accessible otherwise.

Still a bit intimidated? Allow us to break all of the details down for you!

And download our Copyright Checklist and our FairUse Guidelines.
