Forms & Introductory Material

The forms in this section are offered as aids to record-keeping and documenting copyright compliance for educational presentations. They are not official MUSC forms and there is no requirement for their use. They may be printed and used as is or serve as examples of the types of documentation that should be available for reference in case the use of a copyrighted resource in a coursepack, lecture, or other educational presentation is challenged.
Checklist for Fair Use

Each section lists indicators that either favor or oppose fair use. Can be printed to retain a record of how faculty arrive at a fair use decision.
