Here is a practical copyright handbook designed to help librarians, media specialists, and teachers stay within the copyright law while making copyrighted print, nonprint, and Web sources available to students and others. Library educator Rebecca Butler, copyright columnist for AASL's journal Knowledge Quest, explains fair use, public domain, documentation and licenses, permissions, violations and penalties, policies and ethics codes, citation, creation and ownership, how to register copyrights, and gives tips for staying out of trouble. She explains copyright considerations for the Web, television, videos and DVDs, computer software, music, books, magazines, and journals-materials that can create a day-to-day challenge for educators and require this resource's careful guidance. Considerations for distance education courses and materials are also included. A Q & A section offers an introduction to copyright law, public domain, the legal terms of copyright, when to seek and how to obtain permissions, fair use, and more. This copyright resource is designed to make often bewildering and complicated issues manageable. Copyright for Teachers and Librarians is a must-read for any educator or librarian utilizing copyrighted materials in instruction.
