Copyright and "Fair Use" in Education

Students and faculty may benefit from the following document prepared by Temple University's Media Education lab: Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education.

The authors state that the document is intended to help "educators using media literacy concepts and techniques to interpret the copyright doctrine of fair use. Fair use is the right to use copyrighted material without permission or payment under some circumstances — especially when the cultural or social benefits of the use are predominant."
