In universities, academicians explore new ways of teaching their students. To be more effective in what they do, they come up with ideas on how to make their points come across as clearly as possible. Some do outdoor activities while others give as many exams as possible. There are also some who rely on creating visual presentations. For example, “performing” or showing a movie. This essential activity may require attention especially with regards to copyrights. It is important to make sure you are not violating copyright law.

Compliance with copyright law

Many if not all material you find on the internet is protected under US copyright laws. These laws provide the copyright owner exclusive right to reproduce and distribute copies of their works to others. However, any other person who copies, downloads and uploads a copyrighted work without a written permission from the content owner is committing a crime. They can be charged with copyright infringement.

The most common way of unauthorized reproduction involves peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing services like BitTorrent. Through P2P connection, users get to share music or movie files. Those who get caught doing this kind of illegal activity will be subject to sanctions.

Obtaining copyright permissions

According to Stanford University Libraries’ page about copyright and fair use, the basics of getting permission involve five simple steps. First, in every situation, you have to determine whether or not you need to ask for permission. Remember that creative work created or published after 1922 is protected by US copyright law. With exceptions such as “fair use,” you need to check if your unauthorized use may still be legal. Also, you have to know and minimize the risk of not asking for permission. Second, in obtaining permission, it is crucial to identify and know the owner of the work you want to use. The third step in getting permission is to identify the rights you need. This means, finding out the exclusivity, term and territory involving your permissions agreement. Since, getting permission takes one to three months, the fourth step involves planning ahead for the permission and negotiating whether payment is required. Obtaining copyright permission must be done before you want to use the copyrighted work. Finally, get your terms of agreement in writing. It is a mistake to rely on oral permission.

It is best to educate everyone about the importance of complying with copyright laws. We can start by discussing about film copyrights on practical applications as well as the entities that protect them. Make them understand their responsibility and the penalties associated when you commit copyright infringement.
