Copyright and Fair Use Information

Fair Use. Image Appropriation. Public Domain. Intellectual Property.  Copyright. 

These terms can cause confusion for everyone. As a community of students artists and educators members of the OCAC community have some leeway however it crucial that we respect and value the intellectual and creative process of others. 

OCAC follows the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use in the Visual Arts by the College Art Association which contains best practices on analytic writing, teaching art, making art, exhibits and archives.  

Rule #1 . CIte your sources!
