The United States Copyright Law Title 17 of the United States Code Circular 92 Chapter 1 §107. states:
Sec. 107. - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors
Therefore: ... the fair use of a copyrighted work for purposes such as teaching, scholarship or research is not an infringement of copyright for nonprofit educational purposes.
In today's litigious society, it has become necessary to anticipate the use and abuse of legal challenges on the part of those who hate free speech - including those who try to stifle or punish opposing opinions.
