More basics on copyright, fair use, TEACH act, and digitization

The Fair Use Policy defines what is and is not legal at a university under copy write laws.

The Teach Act gives some more leeway to the above, for classroom use.

The Digital Millennium Act applies to items that are digitized and accessible online:

Introduction to Copyright for Language courses

The Yale Center for Language Study has prepared a primer on copyright issues for language courses. It was developed by Howard Barnaby, a copyright lawyer now on the staff of the Yale Center for Language Study, in consultation with the Yale General Counsel’s Office. This is being passed around and referred to quite often.

See http://www.cls.yale.edu/ip.

For our campus, this is only the beginning. Any policies would still need to be worked out with and approved by the university counsel’s office.
