There are a lot of opinions of fair use and the like… I have a few questions regarding the use of copywrited material in teaching.
In teaching an English song to the class…are we allowed to make worksheets and exercises out of the song lyrics?
Can we copy the song off the radio and use it in class?
When trying to take a break from our regular texts, can we copy and use articles from Let’s … magazines or other sources? We have no intrest on using the whole magazine.
I’ve had several people ask me to read things for them and put it on CD. Am I allowed to read copywrited works if it is something they own. DO I have to have them sign a disclaimer stating that my work is not to be resold etc?
Lastly… by being an alumni of a certain university… I have access to the wire services that include complete news paper stories for the last twenty years or more…
My lic. agreement says I can e-mail stories to friends and quote them. There are several interesting stories regarding Taiwan history and things like “Darlie Tooth Paste”.
It’s been a while since I was in school so please refresh me on the rules of quotation. How much can one copy and quote of an article and still be legal?
And is there any problem with a just paraphrasing the articles in question?
Thanks for your help.
