Copyright Basics

This video talks about the use of materials for teaching pertaining to Copyright in US. Like in US, Singapore's Copyright Act protects the creator's rights to their works. Instead of fair use, Singapore's Copyright Act uses Fair Dealing. It serves to give a basic overview on Copyright for teaching.
