It can be challenging to find copyright friendly images and music for projects. It might be tempting to use an image found on Google or your favorite song in a school project, but it's not necessarily ethical - or legal - to do so without permission from the creator or owner of the work. If you want to use a copyrighted image or recording, here are some guidelines to go by.
- Use 30 seconds or 10% of a sound recording, whichever is less
- Use a copyrighted work only for a project that has to do with your class's curriculum
- Show your project only in the class for which you made it; you may keep and share your project (with the music/images) as a part of a portfolio indefinitely
