Copyright in everyday school lifeWhat do teachers have to consider when it comes to copyright?

Can I show students a movie from a streaming service? Is background music allowed in the classroom? And who owns the copyright to creative works created in class? Teachers are confronted with questions like these again and again in their daily work. A website of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) can help. It answers 15 of the most frequently asked questions about copyright in everyday school life.

EUIPO had already created a list of 15 questions on copyright for consumers. With the new list, EUIPO is targeting teachers. The questions are as diverse as "Can teachers scan pages from books or newspapers for their students?" or "Can a teacher record their lessons and use the recording to offer distance learning to other students?". Answers to these and 13 other questions are available at the following link:
