Copyright and teaching

Copyright history (at least the modern Anglo-American timeline) starts with the Statute of Anne, subtitled “An Act for the Encouragement of Learning,” a title so catchy that the US Congress appropriated it for the title of its own first copyright law nearly a century later. A lot has changed in the intervening two centuries, but copyright still has a major impact on teaching and learning. This page gathers links to resources hosted here and elsewhere to help you navigate copyright as you teach.
