Copyright questions can be difficult to answer. When dealing with a copyright questions always ask:
- Is the work protected by copyright, or is it in the public domain? The Digital Copyright Slider may help you determine this.
- Is there an exception to copyright law that might cover your use, such as for libraries or classroom performance?
- Is there a license attached to the work that governs how it can be used?
- Does Fair Use apply? Use the Fair Use Checklist and consider:
- The purpose of your use, commercial or non-profit educational. You may use no more of the work than is needed to make your point.
- The nature of the copyrighted work.
- How much of the copyrighted work are you planning to use.
- What effect does your use have on the value of the copyrighted work.
