Confused about copyright? Tweet us your questions on Jan. 7th
Posted on December 30, 2013 by Jazzy Wright

Can you legally photocopy pages from that textbook? Can students legally
remix music for school assignments? What does fair use mean, and how can it
be applied in the school library or classroom? If you are a school
librarian or educator who is confused by copyright law, you're not alone.
School principals, superintendents, educators and librarians have specific
questions about copyright law but often find themselves without guidance on
the subject.

On January 7, 2014, from 6:00-7:00p.m. EST, school leaders will have the
opportunity to have their questions answered during an interactive
tweetchat with copyright expert and bestselling author Carrie Russell.
Participants can submit questions and take part in the free tweetchat by
using the #k12copylaw hashtag.

As part of the tweetchat, Russell will offer clear guidance on the ways
that principals, superintendents, teachers and librarians can legally
provide materials to students. Additionally, Russell will discuss scenarios
often encountered by educators in schools, such as using digital works in
the classroom and students' use of information found on the web. Russell is
also the director of the American Library Association's Program on Public
Access to Information.

Tweetchat participants will learn about:

   - Fair use
   - Copyright law in the digital age
   - Copyright exploitation in schools (i.e., incidents when copyright
   industry groups exploit school staff under the guise of copyright law

Russell is the author of *Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and
Educators* <http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=3104>, a book that
teaches educators how to fully exercise rights such as fair use while
making decisions that are both lawful and best serve the learning
community. To receive a 10% discount on *Complete

copyright law.

Association of Secondary School Principals.
