Online learning and distance education has existed for decades, and the implementation of such practices has skyrocketed with increased availability of consumer electronics and digital materials. Now, the vast majority of higher education institutions offer classes, if not entire degrees, online. When designing a new online course, or transitioning an in-person course for online learning, professors must be especially careful of the types of materials performed and displayed in the online class. Copyright law sets out different rules and exceptions for the use of copyrighted works in in-person and online classes. In this years first What Matters Now in Higher Ed webinar, HSE attorneys Jodi Reynolds and Alexander Kaczmarek explore copyright’s fair use defense and exceptions to infringement in online classes provided under the TEACH Act.
