[II.R. 2223) COPYRIGHT LAW REVISION: A POSITION PAPER BY THE ASSOCIATIOS u

EDUCATIONAL COMM'XICATIONS AND TECHNOLOGY The members of the Association for Educational Cominunications and TH nology (AECT) believe that technology is an integral part of the trai** learning process and helps to maximize the outcomes of interaction bet teacher and pupil.

Regulations governing United States Copyright were originally develneed to promote the public welfare and encourage authorship by giving auth no rertnin controls over their work. It follows that revisions in Title 17 of the l'nited States Code (Copyrights) should maintain the balance between popis viding for the compensation of authors and insuring that information tema available to the public. Some of the revisions proposed in S. 22 and HR 213 lose sight of this balance between user and producer.

AEGT endorses the criteria to be used in the determination of "fal me as contained in Section 107 of the proposed bill:

Section 107. Limitations on exclusive righte: Fair use

* * . the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by remor) duction in cupies or phonorecords, or by any other menns specified that

Section 106), for purposes such as criticism, comment, news r furti: sholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In 6**** mining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

(1) The purpose and character of the use:
(2) The nature of the copyrighted work:

(3) The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole and

(4) The first of the use upon the potential market for or value of the forlyrighted work. IW4ter, vee propose that the concept of "fair use" should apply equally to the cla exrom teacher and media professional-including xperialinta in autre and library resouros. Media personnel are becoming increasingly important Let Dwore of educational planning teams and must have the assurance that they blir

Mit classroom teachers in the selection of daily instructional materiais pa me with four range curriculum development. Classroom teachers do not always Operate **Indiridually and at (their) own volition." The fact that the media in fermional make up of advance planning and has knowledge afurettor ofte

numerous producers all with different procedures. But even a clearings arrangement will still result in much time spent in waiting for me

We feel this delay, even if it is only (ideally) a week or so, might we do mental to the teaching/learning process. It doesn't allow the educatini sional to take advantage of the "teachable moment." For example, on the wall following a speech by a noted individual, a teacher may want to rls ! Le !! of the speech that appears in the local paper for reproduction and di*i" to a pech class for critique. Clearly, if the teacher had to wait leidi W**** for permission to use the text, the impact of involving students in cui events would be lout. So in many instances, some means other than a ced house must be used.

AECT has spent many hours working with producers in an attempt srk out guidelines that would assist educators in upholding the copyTIK , We have come increasingly to the conclusion that the best meals of 1 the problem is by developing voluntary licensing agreetnenis between and producers. Such agreements wouid allow a pre-determined a muli ing. kind of copying, or maybe even unlimited copying either for no cu for a pretermined fre. Such an agreement wouid set the m o st use in advance and would also allow educators to take advantage of the te able moment."

We are not asking you, the Congress, to legislate a licensing acret 18 would be almost impossible to include prery possible type of 10*****a * ment in legislation. We think we as educators must take the remix]"11. 'I! work with producers of materials to develop such agreemrat. TET ! and will continue to have dialogue with producers of materials in an a ir to watisfy the needs of both groups. We are asking only sufrirt aid et.13 ment from the Congress to both sides to sit down and develop le agreements,

The AEOT position which has been presented in this testimony las le rrrrived by thecineators and materials produerN Representativpus of the these conimanities viewed the position as a realistic step toward rendist

**ue of drtining the limits of fair use. The statement is the wed by 11 or each group as offering protection to educators that is not off 11 tp tu the prucers

We think the incorporation of the AE(T prition into HR. 3 sd ** Jesi lative history is ***ential to the deselopment of a new copril. Par that is equitable to educators and creators of muaterials alike.

I wish to thank the subconmittee for this opportunity to present o'r **** Iar ba* We can impres* tmn you that we are a arruda son are the necessity for a new copyright law that will allow us as eduka!!on for free Nionals to continue the impruituent of education through the a 1 .
