What additional permissions does the TEACH Act grant?

The TEACH Act only modifies previous copyright law in certain specific instances. It does not in any way modify the previous standards for "fair use" of copyrighted materials.

Specifically the TEACH Act:

  • Permits the display and performance of nearly all types of works
  • Removes the previous restriction that content must be transmitted to a classroom, so now there is no restriction on a recipientís location
  • Permits the retention of content and student access for the length of the "class session"
  • Permits the copying and storage of materials when necessary for digital transmission to students
  • Permits the digitization of analog works if they are to be used for a limited time and are not already available through another means to the institution
