Suggested Copyright Policy and Guidelines for California's School Districts.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This manual presents guidelines and policies for California librarians and educators for the reproduction of copyrighted works. Guidelines cover the following types of materials: printed materials; sheet and recorded music; audio recordings (i.e., records, disks, tapes); films, videotapes, filmstrips, overhead transparencies, and slide programs; television (off-the-air taping); radio (off-the-air taping); rental, purchase, and use of videotapes; computer software; and reproduction of works for libraries. Brief statements are also provided on the use of copyrighted materials for educational performances and displays and the potential for copyright infringement when using emerging technologies, i.e., digital video, videodisk, satellite transmission, distance learning, CD-ROM, online databases (and their downloading), informational networks, and other educational interventions that can be manipulated into new copyrightable forms of expression. Concluding the guide are three sample request forms, one for permission to reproduce copyrighted materials, one to request information on the availability and retention of specific television programs, and one to request permission for off-the-air videotaping.
