Hi Dennis

As I interpret the law this language would apply to staff use of OFA
recordings. I do not believe that the courts make the distinction between
a tape created for the teacher and by the teacher. There is some
interesting case law ie the old "betamax" case that says you can tape OFA
for home use with out limitations of time, but once it leaves the home and
enters the arena of the classroom, standard fair use language should apply.

We have published a guide for our K-12 teachers that can be found at :

It is about 5 years old now so some information will not be found. You
have my permission to reproduce the document with appropriate reference to
the source
