Question 4 of 8
Fair use… (select all correct answers that apply)Correct
Yes! Make sure to consider all 4 factors to determine whether a use is “fair.”Incorrect
Fair use is a little different from a license; it’s an exemption and it SOMETIMES but not always applies to educational contexts. Always consider the 4 factors when evaluating fair use!
Question 5 of 8
If content you find online doesn’t have a CC license that means it’s automatically copyrighted and the rights to distribute, perform, etc belong exclusively to the rights holder.Correct

Try again! Copyright IS automatic but it’s not forever. Website terms of services also act as licenses that can override regular copyright protections.

Question 8 of 8
You’re teaching a hospitality course and throughout the semester you require that students post photos of NYC tourist attractions to the shared, open Instagram account @citytechtourism. As part of their final projects, students compile and annotate their favorite Instagram photos from @citytechtourism on your OER site which has a CC-BY-NC license. Who has the right to use (and redistribute) the photos?Correct
This one is really tricky! The terms of service for social media platforms like Instagram are technically licenses and they might compete with other licenses (like a creative commons license that you’ve appended to your OER site). Since the photos were initially posted to Instagram, those terms would likely still apply even if the photos were re-posted in a new context.Incorrect
