Faculty Help: Copyright: TEACH Act

TEACH Act Basics

The Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act offers greater copyright freedom for distance learning instruction if schools enable certain restrictions.

  • TEACH's "perform or display" language can be interpreted more broadly than previous copyright law.
  • Materials may only be accessed by students enrolled in online face-to-face or asynchronous class sessions.
  • Passwords aren't enough: schools must limit saving and reproducing content with additional technology.
