Copyright Information & Resources

As an educator, you enjoy some privileges when sharing copyrighted materials with your students.

It is the responsibility of individual faculty members making requests for services to secure any and all permission, consent, licensing and necessary clearance regarding recording, copying, altering and/or publishing audio and video recordings.

The best policy is always to secure permission or licensing for use. Your department or the library may already have done so. Also, there may be online or broadcast viewing alternatives.  

It is the policy of the University of Alaska to abide by federal copyright law and refrain from using copy-protected materials unless prior permission or licensing has been obtained or unless use is deemed permissible under the exemptions outlined in the fair use provisions of the Copyright Act or the TEACH Act. Provisions of the TEACH Act provide limited educational use of copyright protected material. To learn more about the TEACH Act visit the Copyright Clearance Center web page.

Decision Making Rubrics

It is highly recommended that your thought process, intent, use, and permission-seeking be documented. Toward that end, a selection of decision-making rubrics are offered here as aids. Perhaps you’ll find one, or a hybrid of a few, helpful in organizing this process:
