Copyright Considerations




Iowa’s Area Education Agencies have created an extensive, easy-to-use resource to help students and teachers understand copyright laws and the associated rights and responsibilities as users of copyrighted information. Two versions of Copyright BriefNotes are available to support students and teachers in virtual and physical classrooms. You are welcome to link these resources to your school website or LMS.

  • Copyright BriefNotes for Students – updated in 2022 and available in flipbook or PDF
  • Copyright BriefNotes for Students & Teachers – same content from the student version plus information that helps address copyright questions related to online and virtual learning environments, digital content, copyright permissions, and more. Available in flipbook or PDF.

Additionally, the AEAs have created a Copyright Decision Tree poster. This poster features a QR code to the flipbook version of Copyright BriefNotes for Students.
