ALA issues guidance on showing video content in classrooms


When the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act was enacted in 2002, librarians hoped it would clear up copyright exceptions for the digital delivery of content for distance education. In reality, understanding what is permitted under the TEACH Act in combination with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and existing fair-use exceptions has become even more confusing. To help clarify one aspect of the confusion—digital delivery of video content to the “physical” classroom—the American Library Association (ALA) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) have released a document titled “Performance of or Showing Films in the Classroom.” Available as a PDF file, the document was written by Jonathan Band, legal counsel to the ALA and ARL; Peter Jaszi, professor of law and faculty director of the Glushko-Samuelson Intellectual Property Clinic at American University’s Washington College of Law; and Kenneth D. Crews, director of the Copyright Advisory Office at Columbia University. http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/copyright/fairuse/web-digital%20delivery%20in%20classroomrev3psa.pdf
