The US Copyright Law also provides for Fair Uses of copyrighted material under specific circumstances like; criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship and research. Some teaching uses are also covered, including copies of works distributed in the classroom.
Interpretation of Fair Use hinges on four factors that are covered in detail in the slide show that follows. The major factor for us examining whether a use is a fair use in digital media is publication. A work of music or video may be played in the classroom to make an educational point, but when it is uploaded to the course or department website, or attached to a blog or shared by email — it has been published and is no longer a fair use under most circumstances. Same goes for music or still images used in a video product.
