Copyright Information

November 24, 2008

From The Library Video Company

Library Video Company understands the challenges faced by educators as they navigate the complex rules of copyright while trying to take advantage of new innovative teaching techniques. Even though technology is rapidly changing the way students learn and educators teach, the basic principles governing copyright remain relatively unchanged. The following is a brief survey of the current state of copyright law related to the classroom.
The General Rule.
Copyright protection exists from the time the work is created in a fixed, tangible form of expression. U.S. copyright law grants the owner of a work the exclusive right to: (i) make copies; (ii) prepare derivative works; (iii) distribute copies of the work; (iv) publicly perform the work and/or transmit the work; and (v) display the work. As a general rule, unless a license is obtained, it is unlawful for anyone to violate any of the exclusive rights of a copyright owner. However, the law recognizes the value and need of educators to use copyrighted material in the classroom for educational purposes and, therefore, enumerates certain limited exemptions and exceptions to the exclusive rights of a copyright owner. If your use of an audiovisual work does not fall into one of the exemptions or exceptions described below, such use may infringe the copyright owner’s exclusive rights and, therefore, require a license that grants permission for such use.

Educational Exemptions.
Section 110 of the United States Copyright Act of 1976 (17 U.S.C. §110) establishes a widely relied-upon exemption to the exclusive rights of a copyright owner for the use of copyright-protected audiovisual materials in educational settings. Section 110(1), commonly referred to as the “Classroom Exemption,” pertains to traditional face-to-face classroom settings, while Section 110(2) covers distance learning situations. The educational exemptions under Section 110, as described below, only apply to audiovisual materials used to support curriculum and do not include, under any circumstances, uses for recreational, entertainment, or “rainy day” purposes. Also, only non-profit educational institutions are qualified to take advantage of the exemptions.


The Classroom Exemption (Face-to-Face Teaching)
The Classroom Exemption, under Section 110(1) of the Copyright Act, applies to traditional classroom settings, where the teacher and students are in the same location during a live class session. Educators and students are permitted to perform and display copyrighted audiovisual works in a classroom (or a similar place devoted to instruction – such as a library), as long as such use is in the course of face-to-face teaching activities at a non-profit educational institution. The instructor must be present during the performance and no admission or other fees can be charged to students for viewing the program. If all of the conditions of the Classroom Exemption are met, it is permissible to show a legally obtained program in a classroom or school library without obtaining permission from the copyright owner, even if labels like “For Home Use Only” appear on the packaging. The Classroom Exemption supersedes these written warnings of the copyright holder. Please note, however, that the Classroom Exemption does not authorize teachers or students to make or distribute copies of audiovisual works. The purpose of the exemption is only to facilitate the use of audiovisual materials for live, face-to-face class sessions and does not grant any rights to copy, edit, broadcast, transmit, or otherwise distribute copyright-protected works.
*Note: A widely accepted interpretation of Section 110(1) allows for videotapes and DVDs to be publicly performed via a closed circuit system for multi-classroom utilization, as long as the broadcast does not leave the school grounds. This interpretation is supported by the House of Representatives Report No. 94-1476 which accompanied the passage of the Copyright Act. The Report states, “as long as the instructor and pupils are in the same building or general area, the exemption would extend to the use of devices for amplifying or reproducing sound and for projecting visual images.” This law supersedes all written warnings of the copyright owner, unless there’s a written license, in which case the terms of the license would govern.
