Copyright is something that us future educators should be informed about. Being that we are using material that can be shared, we must know the rules before we get into trouble.
- Everything that you post on the internet is copyrighted!!!
- You can show an entire film in the classroom but only if the school has paid for it. However if you show a video in an alternative classroom you can show the movie in its entirety.
- A lot of times whenever you write a paper and the paper gets published the author ends up losing the copyrights to there paper. This happens a lot because people do not know that they are signing their rights away.
- You can photocopy a page out of something but you can’t copy a whole book.
- Google images has a link where you can go to advanced search and you can specify the usages rights that you want Google to bring up.
- Amount of the work - has to be a small amount . amount a 10th of the work.
- If you need to copy the whole book. You need to ask for copyright privilege, normally have to pay amount.

A great place to be informed about copyrighting is at the TAMUCC library. They have information set up where you can learn what to use and what not to use in the classroom. Here are some great links to help us out:
