Copyright Overview The basics of copyright can be understood by students in all grades, K-12: O Do not take what is not yours O Ask before you borrow or use O Give credit to the person(s) who created it
Intellectual Property O According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, " Intellectual Property is a broad term used to identify any product of the human intellect that has commercial value." This includes logos, films, computer software, inventions, music and more
COPYRIGHT O Copyright laws are intended to protect the creators of original works, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other intellectual works. O Whenever you create any work, you automatically own the copyright to it, and control the use that is made of the work. O A limitation to copyright, in an educational setting, is the doctrine of fair use
FAIR USE DOCTRINE O Fair use of a copyrighted work for purposes such as criticism, satire, comment, reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. O Fair use applies to materials used for educational purposes in an educational institution. If the use of the work cuts into the commercial market for the work, it may not be considered fair-use. O Educational use, brevity, spontaneity, affect on the commercial market need to be considered.
GUIDELINES 1. You may make a single photocopy of any material you need to do your schoolwork, or for your own personal research.

The music you use should be played from legitimately purchased or borrowed recordings, or recorded off the air. 3. You may use copyrighted material to do your schoolwork, but if you use an author's ideas or images, you must give the author credit, either in the text or in a footnote, with a citation.
