Helm, Virginia M.
Because so many educational materials can be duplicated easily, it is imperative that educators be familiar with copyright regulations on the use of technological hardware and software. This fastback provides educators with information about the basic aspects of copyright regulations under the following headings: (1) The Copyright Law and Fair Use (Rights of Copyright Proprietors, Limitations on Exclusive Rights, Fair Use--Statutory Factors, Fair Use--Other Factors, and The Supreme Court and Fair Use); (2) Guidelines for Photocopying (Single Copying for Teachers and Researchers, Multiple Copies for Classroom Use, Prohibited Copying, Permission from Publishers, Copying Music, and Photocopying by Library Staff); (3) Computers and Copyright (Copyright and Software Use, Other Questioned Uses, and School Libraries and Computer Software); (4) Copyright Law and Audiovisual Materials (Permissible Uses, Prohibited Uses, Videotapes--The "For Home Use Only" Warning, School Libraries and Videotapes, and School Libraries and Other Audiovisual Materials); (5) Videotape Recorders--Off-Air Taping (Guidelines for Taping Commercial Broadcasts, Guidelines for Taping Public Broadcasting Service Programs, and Television Broadcasts Taped by Teachers); (6) Live and Transmitted Performances; and (7) Penalties for Infringement of Copyright.
