    Can I record myself reading a book aloud and post it on my social media page? Storytelling/reading books aloud in classrooms favors fair use because it's instructional, non-profit, involves commentary, etc. However, you change the scenario by videotaping it and posting it online. Reading a book aloud (esp. in its entirety) and posting that online may be considered public performance and/or distribution which may infringe on copyright. Consider getting permission from the copyright holder or using books in the public domain and/or books licensed for your planned use.
    Do "lip dubs" violate copyright? Parodies, mash-ups, or transformations of copyrighted materials may be considered fair use. However, the question to ask is: Does a "lip dub" constitute a parody, mash-up, or transformation? If the "lip dub" is just lip-syncing, is that really transformative? If the use is not transformative, consider alternatives such as using royalty free/appropriately licensed music from Creative Commons, getting permission to use the desired music, or obtaining the rights to use the desired music.

    A teacher at my school wants to show the Disney film "A Bug's Life." Can s/he show the whole movie or just clips? Using a curriculum related movie (clips or in its entirety) with face to face instruction, in a nonprofit school, is not a copyright infringement (as long as the movie was legally obtained). See section 110 (1) copyright exemption
    Can I download a YouTube video to use in the classroom? Downloading a YouTube video may violate the YouTube Terms of Service, which you implicitly accept by using the site (see 5B). Terms of Service Agreements typically supersede Fair Use.

    I use a password protected learning management system for my classes, do I still have to consider copyright and fair use? Copyright still applies to a password protected environment like an LMS. Typically when you place a file in a LMS, you are making a copy of that file. Placing it in a password protected environment may favor fair use more than placing it on the open web; however, it does not negate copyright. As in all instances when you use someone else's work for your instruction, you should conduct a fair use analysis. Consider analyzing your intended use with Columbia's Fair Use Checklist
