Fair Use Week

Fair Use Week

Copyright and fair use come into play frequently in higher education. Fair use in the area of teaching, is one of the specified uses which may be fair that are listed in the preamble to the four factors. Congress also recognized the importance of teaching in additional sections of the copyright law, including face-to-face and distance education.

To help you navigate the use of copyrighted materials in instruction, the University Library and Office of Legal Affairs created a Guide to Using Copyrighted Materials in Instruction for use by the Georgia State University community. The guide covers copyright in general, exclusive rights of copyright holders, exceptions to those exclusive rights, and permission and licensing for when there is no exception.

Feedback on the guide is welcome, and we hope you find it useful!
