ILL Fair Use Guidelines for Education for Video Audio Recordings

Section 107 of the 1978 Copyright Law and the 1981 Fair Use Guidelines apply to the use of videotapes. A television broadcast program may be taped and retained for a *45 day period*. It can be shown once by individual teachers in a classroom or similar place devoted to instruction. It can be shown just once more for instructional reinforcement. After the first 10 school days in the 45-day retention period, it may be used for evaluation purposes (i.e., to determine suitability for the curriculum), but it may not be used for student exhibition or any other non-evaluation purpose without authorization.

After 45 days the video recording must be erased if authorization from the copyright holders has not been obtained. Any duplication of a videocassette is illegal unless it is approved by the copyright holders. This applies to making an archival or "back-up" copy of a purchased tape, or to a transfer from one format to another.

I understand the copyright law and will use ILL material for educational purposes only and make no unauthorized reproduction. Receipt of this notice frees liability from Luise V. Hanson Library and Waldorf College.
