Intellectual Property Rights and The Classroom: What Teachers Can Do
Falcon, Raymond
Online Submission
Intellectual property rights restrict teachers' and students' ability to freely explore the intellectual realms of the classroom. Copyright laws protect the author and their work but disable other intellectuals from investigating probable learning environments. This paper will look at key issues where educational institutions are conflicting with intellectual property rights. Also included will be guidelines for teachers and fair use for their classroom in the "Best Practices in Fair Use" and the "Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education." And finally, this paper will take the stance of the unrestricted freedom to use copyrighted materials for educational purposes.
