Mash-ups

Section 29.21 of the Copyright Act allows faculty to use an existing work in the creation and dissemination of a new work.

This means that you can combine and modify short excerpts, Internet content and music or video clips as long as the original sources are from the copyright holder and the sources are cited.

Please note that you cannot break a digital lock to get the sources for the mash-up. A digital lock is any technology that controls copying or access to material.
