Copyright and Fair Use Rules
Students and staff are expected to follow copyright and fair use rules. Generally speaking, it is unlawful to use material without explicit permission from the original creator. There is some leeway for educational purposes, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Even in educational uses, pleading ignorance is not enough to protect you should someone file a legal grievance against your use of their material. To learn more about what you can and cannot do, check out this helpful link or contact your campus Library Media Specialist for more information. The flow chart below is another good place to start when evaluating a situation for Fair Use.
