Teaching & Copyright
In deciding whether it is permissible to reproduce a copyrighted work for use in teaching, the instructor should determine whether the intended use qualifies as fair use (try these checklists), is allowed under another legal exception, or if the work is available under a license agreement. If not, the instructor should seek permission to use it or seek alternative resources.
