Dear EDNET teachers...hope you had a great holiday and are ready to hit the
kids (no--the books) again!  Best of luck to you this Spring.  Here's
something of great interest to all technology teachers.--the TEACH act.
TECHNOLOGY, EDUCATION AND COPYRIGHT HARMONIZATION ACT of 2002  Jan 3 2003
By: Kenneth D. Salomon
DISCUSSION: 
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.
To read more about how this important new legislation concerns you, the
EDNET teacher, read on at the EDNET Newsletter at
