Copyright Resource Guide: Teach Act

A guide that provides direction and resources to faculty with regards to the application of the Teach Act, and to students with regard to intellectual property and photocopying.

What is the Teach Act?

In a nutshell, the TEACH Act stands for Technology Education and Copyright Harmonization Act. This Act was passed by the US Congress in 2002 and clarifies for educators what is permissible when it comes to fair use, and using copyrighted materials, both in the face-to-face classroom and in distance education. All university faculty, staff and students must be in compliance with the Teach Act.
