Copyright, Fair Use, and the TEACH Act Print Page

Brief Overview

Copyright protection exists from the moment a work is created in a fixed, tangible form of expression. In the United States, copyright law protects the authors of "original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works."

Fair use is a concept embedded in U.S. law that recognizes that certain uses of copyright-protected works do not require permission from the copyright holder or its agent.

The TEACH Act (The Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization Act) was signed into law on November 2, 2002. Some of the special copyright requirements of online distance learning are specifically addressed by the TEACH Act.
