Synchronous instructional activities versus asynchronous instructional
activities..are not both "mediated instructional activities"?


Regardless, just because a video can be used in a traditional or
face-to-face classroom does NOT automatically mean it can be digitally
encoded and delivered for distance learning (e.g. streamed delivery within a
CMS) without permission of the copyright owner. Audiovisual works that are
produced and marketed primarily for "performance or display as part of
mediated instructional activities transmitted via digital networks" -- and
any and all portions from said works -- are excluded from the scope of the
TEACH Act.

Background on the TEACH Act

Section 110(2) of the Copyright Act, Title 17 United States Code, was
amended in 2002 to provide for certain permitted uses of copyrighted
material under the so-called TEACH Act (Technology, Education and Copyright
Harmonization Act of 2002). Under certain specific and narrow circumstances,
some kinds of copyrighted materials may be digitally delivered for distance
learning without permission of the copyright owner.

Works Specifically Excluded From the Scope of the TEACH Act

Several categories of copyrighted work are specifically excluded from the
scope of the TEACH Act, including works that are "produced or marketed
primarily for performance or display as part of mediated instructional
activities transmitted via digital networks."

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
