Copyright for Educators | Teachers | Education | PBS SoCal Copyright for Educators is a series of videos designed to help educators learn about what they can and can’t do within the category of “Teaching” in the Copyright Act. Under the Copyright Act, there is nothing more intriguing and exciting for educators than Fair Use. Fair Use is the concept that if you are doing something for the greater good of society, like teaching, then your needs supersede the ownership rights of the copyright holder under the Copyright Act. Teachers, and by association, students, can legally use music, websites, videos, images, and a wealth of copyrighted materials for the purposes of teaching, that wouldn’t be accessible otherwise. Still a bit intimidated? Allow us to break all of the details down for you! And download our Copyright Checklist and our FairUse Guidelines.

Managing Copyright for Librarians Managing copyright in a building is as much about managing people as it is about managing things. Managing things As a practical matter, it is a good policy to have the things under control before concentrating on the people. Reminder: compliance will address the six rights of the copyright holder: reproduction, adaptation, distribution, public performance, public display, and digital distribution of sound recordings. As with all matters of copyright, you can do whatever you have permission to do. Managing people Most teachers will not like a change in copyright enforcement. Here are some suggestions to get started in a school that is less than enthusiastic about copyright compliance, and which seems bent on shooting the messenger: Suggest to the principal that you track requests in one area for a grading period. Copyright law may be a pain to deal with in a school setting, but picking and choosing the laws we choose to obey isn’t in our ethical or cultural heritage.

Copyright for Librarians and Teachers, in a Nutshell You may have wondered whether you hold the copyright to work you’ve put many hours into creating on the job. Who holds the copyright to works created by teachers or librarians? Short answer: In general, when employees create works as a condition of employment, the copyright holder is the employer. As a school librarian or teacher, you create works all the time—lesson plans, finding tools, and so on—fairly independently, without specific conditions established by the school. The employer holds the copyright when you create the works on the job, using school resources and technology, and receive a regular paycheck with Social Security and insurance deductions. Use of your work outside of school If the school holds the copyright to your works, are you allowed to use those works outside of the school—at a conference or in a training session? Using the copyrighted work of others Copyrights can be transferred (see below) and those transfers can be “exclusive,” “nonexclusive,” or “time-based.”
