Copyright and Fair Use
Copyright is the legal right granted to a creator of a work for the exclusive publication, production, sale, or distribution of that work.  As you might imagine, nearly EVERYTHING, then, that one might want to use in the classroom is protected by copyright.  This is true!  In order to permit the educational use of materials, the “Fair Use” doctrine was created.  Specifically, this doctrine allows the use of copyrighted materials for criticism, commentary, parody, news reporting, research, scholarship, and classroom instruction.  The principle behind Fair Use is that, in using the work for one of these purposes, no money/income is being diverted from the creator of the work.
