Copyright & Fair Use Laws

Grades 7-12

Think before you copy!

Copyright laws protect published and unpublshied work. You need permission from the author before you copy!

Fair Use allows you to use a limited amount of copyrighted material for your educational use. Ask yourself these questions?

* Does it have a non-profit educational purpose?

* What kind of material do you want to use?

* Are you using only a small portion?

* Will you deprive the author of making money?
