Florida Post-Secondary Higher Education Policy on the Use of Copyrighted Works in Education and Research

Florida Institutions of Higher Education require compliance with copyright law and, when appropriate, supports the exercise in good faith of full copyright exemption rights by faculty, staff, and students. Specifically, Florida Institutions of Higher Education:

  • informs and educates faculty, staff, and students about copyright law, including the limited exclusive rights of copyright holders as set forth in 17 U.S.C. § 106, the application of the four fair use factors in 17 U.S.C. § 107, and the other copyright exceptions;
  • makes available tools and resources to faculty, staff, and students for their use in determining copyright status and ownership and whether use of a work in a specific situation would be a fair use and, therefore, not an infringement under copyright law;
  • facilitates use of materials currently licensed by Florida Institutions of Higher Education and provides information on licensing of third-party materials; and
  • identifies individuals who can counsel faculty, staff, and students regarding application of copyright law. Contact help@flvc.org for more information.
