A dreaded copyright question
I think this may be the most appropriate subforum, though please feel free to educate me!
There are two scenarios, and I'm wondering if there's an allowance for them in schools.
A: Teacher has made a number of current music files available on the network for pupils to use in their work.
B: Teacher has ripped a music track from an online video to use in class.
From what I understand, both situations would involve asking permission from the copyright holder. Can anyone clarify further?
