If you are creating a product, make sure that you are respecting copyright law and fair use guidelines. Many creators have made their work available to be used and/or modified by others through a creative commons copyright license. Some creators ask that you simply give credit to them, some don't even require attribution, although it's always best practice to give credit where credit is due.

Fair Use Guidelines for Education

Linked here is a basic guide to what you can do with copyrighted material and still be considered "fair use." Often we assume that if it's for education, we can do whatever we want, but there are still limitations. 

Some basic limits that are particularly useful when creating multimedia presentations for a class project are: 

  • One chart, picture, diagram, or cartoon per book or per periodical issue.

  • No more than five images (e.g. a photograph or illustration) by a single artist or photographer.

  • No more than 10 percent or three minutes (whichever is less) of lawfully acquired copyright video.

  • Up to 10 percent or 30 seconds (whichever is less) of a copyright musical composition.
