Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, etc. & Copyright

Please note that Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, etc. online meetings are not considered an extension of face-to-face physical classroom settings. Displaying copyrighted materials during these kinds of meetings would fall under distance education copyright rules (see the online teaching tabs in this guide.) Please remember that copyrighted materials you display in such meetings should not be available in electronic format online on the market. In that case you should give the link to those materials to your students or embed them in Canvas if the library is subscribed to those materials or are available for free online on legal websites. Be sure that the meeting is password protected and only students registered for the class have access to the meeting. Please do not record meetings in which copyrighted materials are displayed.
