Copyright Laws Quiz

This quiz is designed to assess the educator's understanding of copyright laws pertaining to use in the classroom. This will test your basic knowledge of the laws and their applications.

If you have trouble with the quiz, please ask me for assistance. Some of the questions may be a little trick, and I don't want my ability to confuse you to interrupt your ability to understand. I am always available at the end of class.
