Copyright is major consideration when creating and using instructional media. If you use any media that you did not create yourself, you must seek permission to use it in a classroom or on a website. There are certain exceptions under the Fair Use Doctrine which allows media to be used for educational purposes as long as certian conditions are met. Works that are Public Domain may be used without infringing on copyright. These are works that never had a copyright or the copyright has expired. Creative Commons provides a platform to legally share works. Each contributor to Creative Commons decides how the work may be shared and which attributions must be included when the work is shared.
