Fair Use & Teaching Remotely During Covid-19
If you need to make material quickly available to students follow these guidelines to reduce copyright risk.
"While legal obligations do not automatically dissolve in the face of a public health crisis, U.S. copyright law is, thankfully, well equipped to provide the flexibility necessary for the vast majority of remote learning needed at this time...It is evident that making materials available and accessible to students in this time of crisis will almost always be a fair use." -Public Statement of Library Copyright Specialists: Fair Use & Emergency Remote Teaching and Research\
This statement is meant to provide further clarity on how copyright law applies to remote teaching in the wake of the Covid outbreak. https://tinyurl.com/tvnty3a
