31 Can I put a map on my web page? “Due to licensing restrictions, we cannot authorize you to put a map image directly on a web page. However, you can add ``map of'' links to your (non-commercial) web pages. When someone clicks on that link, they will go to our site, and see a map that you have selected. The easiest way to create the url is to use our regular site to create the map you want, and then use the ``Mail It'' link to mail the map to yourself.” r=~3b79dd43.6dc1.6aba.5/c=0?Url=/doc/maps.faq.cgi&Title=FA Q r=~3b79dd43.6dc1.6aba.5/c=0?Url=/doc/maps.faq.cgi&Title=FA Q

40 From the Government From the Library of Congress American Memory Collection – –LOC doesn’t own copyright so can’t grant permission From the National Archives and Records Administration – –Public domain versus copyright

41 Doing a Search From the US Copyright Office… At your own risk No guarantees Consult a copyright attorney My advice: unless it says it isn’t, it is!

42 Getting Permission Suggestions from University of Texas: Property/permissn.htm Property/permissn.htm Copyright Clearance Center: –Mostly for academic photocopies

43 What is Fair Use? The guidelines apply to use:...without permission,...of portions,...of lawfully acquired copyrighted works, educational multimedia projects,...created by educators or students, part of a systematic learning activity, nonprofit educational institutions.

44 The Fair Use Statute Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. US Code Copyright Statement:

45 Fair Use Educators may use copyrighted materials within their own classrooms without express permission from the copyright owner.

46 Standing on Shaky Ground There are limits… “No real definition of the concept has ever emerged.” United States Code

47 Fair Use Standards The purpose and character of the use The nature of the copyrighted work The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the work as a whole The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the work

48 Purpose Subcategories Commercial versus non-profit Criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, research (not restrictive) Degree of transformation

53 Educators May… Use lawfully acquired copyrighted works when producing their own educational multimedia projects to support their teaching needs Retain them indefinitely for workshops or portfolios Retain them for two years for classroom use

54 Parody Parody must comment on the work itself and the humor must come from the meeting of form and content Include enough of the original work to link it with the parody but the less similar the more fair use Parody can’t destroy the market value for the original

55 Disclaimer Only guidelines Exceeding these may or may not be fair use The bigger the excess, the bigger the risk

62 But it’s on the Web… Internet access does not mean works can be reproduced and used without permission or license. Some copyrighted works may have been posted without copyright holder’s permission.

64 But what about that Cosby episode… From TBS who shows many Cosby reruns… I was wondering how I can go about purchasing videos of episodes from my favorite series that I watch on the Superstation every day. Can you help? Unfortunately TBS Superstation does not own the rights to sell any series episodes on video, we only have rights to broadcast. You can try an internet search for more information on purchasing episodes of your favorite series. Also try calling these major video retailers, they do offer some episodes for some series on video.
