The educational fair use guidelines apply to material used in educational institutions and for educational purposes. Examples of “educational institutions” include K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Libraries, museums, hospitals, and other nonprofit institutions also are considered educational institutions under most educational fair use guidelines when they engage in nonprofit instructional, research, or scholarly activities for educational purposes.

“Educational purposes” are:

noncommercial instruction or curriculum-based teaching by educators to students at nonprofit educational institutions planned noncommercial study or investigation directed toward making a contribution to a field of knowledge, or presentation of research findings at noncommercial peer conferences, workshops, or seminars

The Fair Use Doctrine applies to this site. Fair use is a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work. 

Some of the photos on the TLSN site are from the University of Texas Center for American History, UT Sports information, SWC office, Austin History Center, Texas Sports Hall of fame, Texas Sports Photography,, the Daily Texan, and Alcalde. All the links to these sites are denoted in the "credit" section of the TLSN website. Please visit these sites to learn more about our great University.

The "good faith" defense (Section 504(c)(2)) reduces the statutory damages where the infringer was an educational institution, library, archive, or public broadcaster and reasonably believed that the infringing use was "fair use."
