Copyright law guarantees that the creator of a work has the exclusive right to reproduce and distribute the work.
Copyright applies to use in the classroom, too: we can use something for educational purposes and still be in violation of the law. It's important we respect the rights of copyright holders and use copyrighted works legally.
You can use another's work if any of these are true:
Those first two cases - Fair Use and Public Domain - are the ones that we appeal to most often in an academic setting.
Using a copyrighted work without permission is allowed under certain conditions: this is termed Fair Use. Section 107 of U.S. Copyright Law tells us to consider four factors that will each either support or oppose fair use:
After each of these factors are evaluated, if you find that a majority of the factors favor fair use, then no permission is needed to use the work. For more details and help determining if your use is fair, try consulting one of these online resources:
Most commonly, Public Domain refers to works with expired copyright or no copyright at all, such as most works published before 1923. No permission whatsoever is needed to copy or use public domain works.
To determine if your work is in the public domain you might try consulting one of these helpful guides:
Some examples of Public Domain include ideas and facts, the English language, the works of Shakespeare and Beethoven, the Mona Lisa, and the patents on powered flight.
If a work is not in the public domain and your use of a work is not considered fair use, you will need to request permission from the copyright holder to reproduce or distribute the work. Try using this sample permission letter, adapted from UMUC's sample letter. If you aren't sure who the copyright holder is, try looking up the work on the Copyright Clearance Center's Pay-per-Use service. Remember that it is your responsibility to contact the copyright holder when permission is needed.
As Christians and educators, we need to understand what is acceptable and ethical when using copyrighted materials in the classroom. Some frequently asked questions are below, but you can also find out more information at the Copyright Office's Reproduction of Copyrighted Works by Educators and Librarians guide.
You should consider copyright laws every time you use materials created by someone else. For example when:

When we place a work in our online reserves we are digitally reproducing it, so it is subject to copyright laws. As with other uses, the material has to be in the public domain, it has to meet fair use criteria, or you need to get permission from the copyright holder.
As a general rule of thumb, we put these types of materials in our secure online course reserves:
Additionally, the library does not put the same material on reserve for the same class in subsequent semesters without permission from the copyright holder. Please note that it is the responsibility of the instructor to contact the copyright holder anytime permission is needed. Try using this sample permission letter, adapted from UMUC's sample letter, when requesting permission from a publisher.
The Library adds a copyright statement at the end of all online reserves. The Library reserves the right to refuse an item for reserves if it believes the item is not in compliance with copyright law.
All items posted on Blackboard must meet several criteria. They must:
In addition, you may only copy reasonable portions of the work. According to the Agreement on Guidelines for Classroom Copyright in Not-for-Profit Educational Institutions a reasonable portion is not more than one chapter from a book (less than 2,500 words) or an excerpt from a book (10% of the work; not more than 1,000 words); one article from a single journal or newspaper issue (less than 2,500 words); one short story (less than 2,500 words), essay (less than 2,500 words), or poem (250 words or less) from a collection. For audiovisual media on blackboard, a general rule is up to 10% or 3 minutes of a video and up to 10% or 30 seconds of music.
If you would like to provide the full text, a great option is to provide a link to the item in one of our databases or as an eBook.

The requirements for Blackboard and online reserves would apply to any other digital host you might use, such as Flickr, YouTube, or Google Documents. All works should be in the public domain or meet criteria for fair use and include a copyright notice.
To learn more about copyright infringement on YouTube and similar media, check out Copyright School (a fun video featuring Happy Tree Friends).
The requirements for Blackboard and Online reserves would apply to any copies or handouts you might use, such as journal articles, poems, or quotes. All works should be in the public domain or meet criteria for fair use and include a complete citation and copyright notice.
Yes, but there are some limitations. The showing must be on campus in a classroom and part of regular class instruction. It may not be open to the public. Further, the copy used must be lawfully made, such as movies from the AV Library, Netflix, or a rental store. Be sure to also take advantage of our subscription to Films on Demand, which you can access online from your classroom - no need to get a DVD! You might also try Discovery Education and some of the other video databases on our Video and Multimedia page.
If you are showing a video to a public audience or in a setting not related to teaching, you will need to obtain public performance rights.

In most cases, no. Changing the format of a work is considered reproduction, which is protected by copyright. For instance, converting a VHS to DVD without permission from the copyright holder is an infringement of copyright. However, if the older format is obsolete, meaning the equipment is no longer being sold, the library can make a reproduction. In that case, if it is made into a digital format, that copy may not leave the library. There are other exceptions made for libraries and archives.
