Using copyrighted images in your Brightspace course site or in a classroom presentation will likely fall under Fair Use.
Posting copyrighted images on a website or using them in published work without permission is copyright infringement.
Thanks to the Butler University Libraries for creating and sharing this comprehensive guide on Using Images.
The University of Maine System licenses with ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC each year to allow for performance of music. Open recitals, like Jazz Week, are covered by these licenses with the exception of theatrical performances where music is involved (e.g. musicals). Please contact Rob Sobczak if you have questions.
ASCAP - The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers
BMI - Broadcast Music, Inc.
SESAC - not an acronym!
