15 Copyright Rules Every Student Should Know You might think that liberal arts students are the only ones who need to understand copyright law, but future photographers, animators, writers, and artists are actually the ones who might be suing students one day. As students rush to complete assignments, one of the last things on their minds is copyright law. The temptation to pluck resources from just about anywhere is often too great for some students, and others are simply unaware that rules and regulations protecting the use of art and content even exist. But the fact is that these rules do exist, and regardless of knowledge, students are expected to play by these rules. We’ve highlighted 15 copyright rules that are the most important to students, and also the most often ones misunderstood. Fair use This is a big one for students, and we’ll hit on more details further, but first, you must know the basics of fair use for students.

Copyright & plagiarism for students Copyright & plagiarism for students Copyright infringement Copyright infringement is when an individual, who does not possess the copyright of a work, violates one or more of six rights (reproduction, adaptation, distribution, public performance, public display, digital transmission of sound recordings) of copyright owners. There are three types of copyright infringement: innocent, standard, or willful. Fines from $750 - $250,000. Criminal prosecution is possible when something has been copied and distributed on a large scale, such as pirating music and movies on file sharing sites.

Fair use There is some misinformation out there that might lead you to believe fair use automatically applies if you say a few magic words. There is actually no silver bullet that will guarantee you are protected by fair use when you use copyrighted material you don’t own. Courts will consider all four of the factors described above and weigh them on a case-by-case basis. Here are some common myths: Myth #1: If I give credit to the copyright owner, my use is automatically fair use. As you saw above, transformativeness is usually a key in the fair use analysis. Myth #2: If I post a disclaimer on my video, my use is fair use. As we noted above, there are no magic words that will do this for you. Myth #3: “Entertainment” or “non-profit” uses are automatically fair use. Courts will look carefully at the purpose of your use in evaluating whether it is fair, but the three remaining factors also need to be considered.
