Let's be fair

For the second time in recent weeks, someone posted to Facebook about finding her work being used with proper attribution. To add insult to injury, the work was being sold. I am not stranger to this either. For years I found course materials I had developed being used by others without any attribution. I try to be scrupulous when I share the work of others. It is better to err on the side of caution when using work that is not my own.

Here is a checklist that I wish everyone would consult when trying to determine what is "fair use": https://copyright.columbia.edu/content/dam/copyright/Precedent%20Docs/fairusechecklist.pdf.
