Copyright Facts, continued. The hard truth...
Fair use and other relevant copyright law provisions are the essential means by which teachers teach, students learn, and researchers advance knowledge. The Copyright Act of 1976 defines intellectual property principles in a way that is independent of the form of publication or distribution. These provisions apply to all formats and are essential to modern library and information services. The fair use guidelines define the limited copying that is allowed under the U.S. copyright law without the permission of the owner.
Educators have an obligation to educate students about their rights and responsibilities under intellectual property law.
Some of the resources that faculty wish to use with students fall outside the provisions of fair use. See the sections on specific formats for any of your questions.
