    I use a password protected learning management system for my classes, do I still have to consider copyright and fair use? Copyright protection still applies to materials in 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. 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.

    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.

    Can we watch a rented (or borrowed) video in the classroom? Yes, if the movie is legally obtained, curriculum related, involves face to face instruction, and the classroom is in a nonprofit school. See section 110 (1) copyright exemption
    Can we watch a rented (or borrowed) video after school? After-school programs, entertainment events, reward activities, etc. are not covered under the curriculum stipulation of the video guidelines; therefore, it is not acceptable to show a video under these circumstances unless a performance rights contract has been purchased. For more on performance licensing see some of the commonly used licensing services here: Music-ASCAP, BMI; Video: Movie Licensing USA, Criterion Pictures, Motion Picture Licensing Corporation (Note: These services are not necessary for using music and showing videos in the classroom that comply with Fair Use or Section 110 (1) copyright exemption.)
