Copyright issues for the technological classroom : what is permissible under current copyright law and guidelines for educators in the design and use of multimedia, disance learning, and other recent technological advances?
Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Copyright and audio-visual education; Copyright and distance education; Fair use (Copyright);
Technologies, such as computers, Internet, electronic mail etc., offer educational institutions limitless opportunities for learning and teaching. While technological advancements encourage academia to boldly go where no one has gone before, there are legitimate copyright and intellectual property concerns that need to be addressed. The current copyright law passed in 1976, although it legally established the Fair Use principle, is inadequate given the age we live in.
To encourage dialogue, this review of the literature will explore the applicability of copyright law to educators in the electronic environment. Current law, established guidelines, and recent court decisions will be discussed in relationship to their role in determining what is acceptable and unacceptable Fair Use.
