What is the TEACH Act?

On November 2, 2002, the "Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization Act" (TEACH Act), part of the Justice Reauthorization legislation (H.R. 2215), was signed into law by President Bush. This Act revised Section 110(2) and 112 of the U.S. Copyright Law governing the conditions under which accredited, nonprofit educational institutions in the U.S. may use copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright owner and without payment of royalties.

The American Library Association has provided excellent background materials and guidelines for meeting the requirements of the Act.
