TEACH has a big long laundry list of criteria that must be true in order to make use of its protections. Many you can assume to automatically be true for classes you are teaching at PCC. These include:
The following are the criteria that you'll need to actively evaluate if you want to make use of TEACH:
PHEW! Quite a list! If your use and material meet all of the criteria above, congratulations! Your use is protected by TEACH. TEACH is great when it applies because it gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing in clear terms that you are not making an infringing use. If your use does not meet all of the above criteria, don't despair! Your use might still be a fair use. Fair use doesn't always offer us the same peace of mind but it makes up for it by being a flexible and dynamic doctrine designed to support a wide variety of beneficial uses of copyrighted material.
