Recording and Duplicating Commercially Produced or Broadcast Audio Materials
Cassettes or compact discs may only be copied if similar recordings are not available
from a commercial source at a reasonable cost or if you have obtained special permission.
Under defined circumstances, section 110 and the TEACH Act will cover digitizing and
streaming recordings for instructional purposes. Fair use may also cover recording
brief segments for instructional purposes. Format conversions of foreign language
tapes without subtitles can be made for instructional purposes when the only available
NTSC versions are subtitled.
Duplicating music recordings
Duplication of music recordings must follow the same rules and restrictions as duplication
of non-music recordings above, except that a single copy may be made for use in the
classroom to aid in aural instruction and examinations.
