The Climate of Distance Education in the 21st century: Understanding and Surviving the Changes Brought by the TEACH (Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization) Act of 2002
Lipinski, Tomas A.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v29 n6 p362-374 Nov 2003
On Saturday, November 2, 2002, President Bush signed into law, in the form of TEACH (the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization Act of 2001, S. 487), legislation representing a significant reform of the copyright landscape as it applies to distance education, and the use of protected material, analog, but especially digital. This article presents a review of its provisions. It is a complex piece of legislation, creating an assertive myriad of new compliance and use conditions to which an institution must adhere before it can experience any benefit from TEACH.
