A guide to how the Edgewood College Copyright Policy works

Edgewood Copyright Policy

All members of the Edgewood community are expected to abide by copyright law. The Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act of 2002 makes it easier for not-for-profit educational institutions to make use of electronic resources. In order to take advantage of the provisions, you will need to review and understand when material is in the public domain, and the rights and limitations of fair use. Fair use is NOT automatic because we are an educational institution and you may need to obtain permission from the copyright holder. This is often easier than you may think.

Although written for distance education, the law has implications for the gamut of digital environments.
