  • Copyright Overview: Fair Use | Oviatt Library
    the use of consumable works such as a workbook from being copied or placed on reserve as the use of such books is considered highly commercial and may demonstrably impact sales of the item The third factor regards the amount used An amount that would preclude the need to purchase the whole item weighs against fair use whereas an amount to teach an aspect of the subject but does not negate the market from purchasing the work may factor towards fair use The substantiality of the work used is generally accepted as being the point of the work or the heart Some works might have equal weight to all sections where an excised chapter while important does not reflect the entire content and would not be considered the whole work when divorced from its context This would favor fair use However some copyrighted works may have a section that stands as a representative of the whole While not as common those sections may factor against fair use Often cited is if posting the last chapter of a popular work i e Harry Potter which reveals the ending would generally not support a case of fair use The library has adopted the general rule of using copyrighted material that limits the amount used to 10 or a chapter whichever is less of a book or one article from a journal title and not more than 10 of a single issue This should be noted that it is not a negotiated amount with any entity representing copyright holders nor a codified legal statute It is part of a code of best practices recommended by organizations such as the Association of Research Libraries As always individual instances should be evaluated in and of themselves and consultation may be needed The fourth factor should be used to view how the use of the copyrighted item will affect the marketplace This factor is one that should be considered very carefully While the law does not specify that the fourth factor is the paramount factor in fair use it is often cited when infringement has been found seemingly giving it more weight through court decisions If the use of the item s by amount or frequency can be reasonably assumed to affect the revenue of the publisher it is possible that it would exceed the guidelines of fair use This would be an instance where the reserves could replace the sale of a textbook if the items come from the same publisher or if an excess of copies are made The library reserves tries to limit the number of student access to reserves by the password system changing it in subsequent semesters to prevent ongoing access The library has also partnered with a copyright licensing company known as Sipx to provide a mechanism for obtaining copyright permission for items that would exceed fair use guidelines Repeated or long term use might provide the argument for exceeding the fourth factor of fair use though the law itself

    published after 1923 and before 1989 failed to initiate or keep their copyright protection Numerous works published during this time may be in the public domain The changing laws of copyright have made this variable depending on an item s creation and or publication Therefore determining whether an item is in the public domain depends on when it was published whether a copyright notice was included at the time of publishing applicable only in certain years or the time of the author s death Public Domain or Not Date of first publication Public domain Before 1923 Yes Between 1923 and 1977 without notice Yes Between 1923 and 1963 with but not renewed after 28 years Yes Between 1923 and 1963 with and renewed after 28 years No Protected until 2018 or longer Between 1964 and 1977 with notice No Protected until 70 years after author s death Between 1978 and Jan 1 2003 created before 1978 but published before Jan 1st 2003 No Protected through 2047 Between 1979 and Mar 1 1989 without or subsequent registration Yes Between 1979 and Mar 1st 1989 without but renewed or published with notice No Protected until 70 years after author s death After Mar 1st 1989 with or without notice No Protected until 70 years after author s death Published after 2002 but created before 1978 or author s death is prior to 1935 Yes Government publications are largely public domain from time of publication due to the standing policy of classing these documents for public use However some materials published by the government may still be protected by copyright therefore it is necessary to check for a notice restricting usage of these materials NOTE The public domain in the United States is currently frozen No new works are expected to enter the

  • Copyright Overview: FAQs | Oviatt Library
    been uploaded without the copyright owner s consent 2 I m teaching an online only course how can I show a feature film to my class Feature films can be tricky but you have a few options If showing a portion of the film will suffice you may be able to apply Fair Use or TEACH Act guidelines If you need to show a film in its entirety you may want to ask your students to purchase the film via a subscription service such as Netflix or Amazon Requiring students to pay for access to films is akin to requiring textbooks Canistream it is a helpful website for finding where films are available for streaming Additionally if students are able to come to campus you can place videos from the Library s collections on Course Reserve for viewing 3 Can I override the DRM features on DVDs so I can show clips to my class Maybe The Digital Millennium Copyright Act DMCA prohibits the overriding of Digital Rights Management DRM features however Section 1201 allows for certain exemptions Currently short portions may be allowed if there are no reasonably available alternatives the DVD has been lawfully made and acquired and the clips are for educational purposes such as criticism and analysis of the material However the exemptions do not apply to fictional films 4 Can I show my class a film via my personal Netflix account Probably not as this is likely a violation of your contract with Netflix Services provided by content providers such as these are often restricted to personal and non commercial use only I V EBOOKS DIGITAL PUBLISHING Top menu 1 Are links copyrighted Am I liable if I post or publish a link to material that turns out to be pirated or unauthorized Individual links can not be copyrighted If one collects and creates an annotation of many weblinks one can assert that the annotations are copyrightable Additionally one is not liable for copyright infringement by merely referring users to a page or to content that is itself a violation of copyrights 2 I want to excerpt a few paragraphs of a work to publish on my course blog It that too much How much is acceptable Using content requires a fair use analysis examining the purpose of the use the nature of the work to be used the extent of the work to be used as well as the impact that the use has on the original See our Fair Use page for more details on how to analyse and determine a Fair Use for content Briefly posting an excerpt from a recent novel or a poem would be more difficult to justify than an excerpt from an encyclopedia or fact book 3 Using HTML I created a personal website for my course How much of it is protected by copyright Is my HTML coding protected as well as the content Section 102 a of the Copyright Act defines the following eight things as copyrightable 1 literary works 2 musical works including any accompanying words 3 dramatic works including any accompanying music 4 pantomimes and choreographic works 5 pictorial graphic and sculptural works 6 motion pictures and other audiovisual works 7 sound recordings and 8 architectural works However it does not extend to any idea procedure process system method of operation concept principle or discovery In other words the content is protected but the vehicle in this case the HTML coding arguably a system of content delivery is not protected under copyright V ACCESSIBILITY COPYRIGHT Top menu 1 Is making an audio version of a book for a blind student a violation of copyright Probably not Copyright law section 121 provides specific exemptions for the creation of accessible works essentially an authorized organization i e a non profit or government agency can create a copy of a copyrighted work for the sake of accessibility The Americans With Disabilities Act also mandates that people with disabilities be provided with accessible content However certain conditions must be met The content must be available only to specific users The resulting format must also be usable for those with disabilities Copyright notices and warnings must also accompany these new versions VI Special collections archives Top menu 1 I found some pretty old materials in the archives Since they ve never been published but appear in a publicly funded archive are they available for me to use freely One of the reasons for developing copyright law was to spur incentives for creativity and innovation As a result unpublished works are protected more than published works In fact unpublished works are more difficult to justify in a Fair Use defense than published works The copyright term is also longer for unpublished works Currently the public domain for published works ends at 1923 but the cut off date is for unpublished works is 1895 If the work you ve found is pre 1895 then it is likely in the public domain and free to use VII ScholarWorks ETDs Top menu 1 How is Open Access related to Copyright Open Access is the free accessibility of published materials with economic and physical access barriers to the content removed for the readers In other words anyone can access and use the content for free and usually online CSUN has its own Open Access resolution passed in November 2013 by the Faculty Senate However it does not mean to say that the open content itself is copyright free Indeed many of the authors still assert their copyrights but they also agree that access to the information is more important than the potential economic benefit of pay for access models Usually open access works have a Creative Commons or other open license dictating what rights have been waived and which have been retained 2 Why are some Electronic Theses and Dissertations ETD available openly but others are restricted We have three ETD collections and access to each is dictated by various university policies and
