    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.
    May I use images of Google's logos in a presentation that I'm posting online to teach my students about Google apps? Since trademarks are representations of a company, businesses take their use very seriously. Trademarked branding is protected by intellectual property laws. Many companies provide permissions information on their websites. Here are a two examples: Google Microsoft

    Can we broadcast videos over the school video network? As long as the video is not converted for use on a digital video server, it may be broadcast under fair use guidelines. Among other stipulations, this requires that the video be shown only in classrooms where it is directly related to the standard course of study being taught at the time. The manager of the video distribution system should keep records of both the provenance of the video and the lesson plans in use at the time of viewing.
    A new student was added to the choir. Can we make a copy of the sheet music for her? You could make an emergency copy, assuming that you have placed an order for a legal copy.

    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. For more on performance licensing, see some of the commonly used licensing services here: Music-ASCAP, BMI

    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.
