TILT Teaching Guides Introduction: Copyright Essentials "To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries." U. S. Constitution: Article 1, Section 8 This teaching guide explains the three exemptions provided educators under U.S. copyright law—Title 17 of the United States Code. These exemptions spell out the conditions under which copyright-protected materials may be used in U.S. accredited nonprofit educational institutions without seeking the express consent of the copyright holder. These exemptions are as follows: • Classroom Exemption • Distance Exemption (TEACH Act) • Fair Use Exemption In the event neither the Classroom Teaching nor Distance Education exemptions apply—both of which should be looked to first—the broader, more lenient Fair Use exemption might. Note: "Broad and lenient" does not imply or suggest, in any way, that Fair Use is a blanket, catch-all piece of legislation authorizing the use of copyright-protected materials when all else fails. Each display or performance must be considered individually—and a good faith determination made—regarding under which exemption the use of otherwise copyright-protected material is authorized. Once made, it is essential that the instructor be able to support his or her determination with a credible argument. Please note that understanding and properly applying these exemptions is an individual responsibility and that each instructor at Colorado State University is legally bound to comply.

Classroom Teaching Exemption Instructors and students of U.S. accredited nonprofit educational institutions may— in compliance with certain stipulations—use, display and/or perform in a classroom environment any copyright-protected material or work without seeking the copyright holder permission no
