Fair Use & Emergency Remote Teaching & Research: "While legal obligations do not automatically dissolve in the face of a public health crisis, U.S. copyright law is, thankfully, well equipped to provide the flexibility necessary for the vast majority of remote learning needed at this time.... For copies made to support rapid adoption of remote teaching, users should be thoughtful about this factor [amount & substantiality], but not agonize over it: a use can be fair as long as it reproduces what is reasonable to serve the purpose.... Campuses should restrict access to course materials only to students, instructors, or teaching assistants enrolled in the course. Further, they should provide content only for the period of time needed, and excerpt materials when pedagogically appropriate."

As CCC is not able to offer advice as to whether a license to use the material is required, CCC has coordinated with publishers to authorize the use of publishers’ materials in distance learning models and other uses as required by the pandemic, at no cost to the user, during this time of emergency....This authorization is valid through August 1, 2020."
