Article Summarizing Applications of TEACH Act. Quote: “The President signed into law the Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization Act of 2002 on November 2, 2002. The TEACH Act amends the Copyright Act of 1976 by rewriting Section 110(2) and adding a new Section 112(f). Together, these revisions give instructors at accredited nonprofit educational institutions and governmental bodies teaching via interactive digital networks on campus and at a distance enhanced capability to employ most third party copyrighted works in electronic courseware without the need to secure permission from copyright owners. These changes bring into closer congruity an instructor's rights to use copyrighted works in face-to-face and remote teaching settings.”

Comment: Nice, concise. [Serious Instructional Technology]

this is something along with Boucher's new bill that could be great for education
