    • ensure protection from copyright infringement. 

    The resources below will support the understanding of copyright and fair use. Also included are resources for the instruction of students on copyright and fair use. Additonally, resources are provided for students to use when determining fair use of creative works during product creation for both school assignments and personal use.
