Teacher's Guide to Music, Media, and Copyright Law book

Teacher's Guide to Music, Media, and Copyright Law book

Although this book was specifically written for classroom teachers, it includes a wealth of useful information for private music teachers and musicians of all kinds.

In this era of unprecedented access to information, teachers have a wealth of resources readily available for lesson planning -- but determining what legally can and can't be used in the classroom is a difficult task. The Teacher's Guide to Music, Media, and Copyright Law helps explain in plain English just how information, images, video, and music can be incorporated into any kind of lesson plan without running afoul of copyright laws. You'll learn:
• what you can legally use without permission
• how to obtain and license what you need permission to use
• how to check the copyright status of any media item
• how to apply copyright legality examples to real classroom situations
