U.S. copyright law Edit

Under the 1976 Copyright Act, teachers are exempt from copyright infringement claims for performing copyrighted works in certain contexts. Performance of a work done in the course of face-to-face instruction in a classroom (or a similar place devoted to instruction), or performances done as part of instructional activities of a nonprofit institution, may not be a copyright infringement.[1]

Another teaching exemption removes particular works from infringement of the performance right in the context of distance education.[2]
