Hi, can anyone help please? 

Due to the latest situation where schools are closed we have been keeping in contact with parents / children via closed class Facebook pages, staff have been videoing live lessons, adding links to resources and some have been reading stories.  A parent has contacted about reading  stories being against copyright. I have seen some schools withnstories posted on school website which are open to everyone but these are closed pages but I am unsure. Have been looking into things on the copyright site etc but contact with people is slow at the moment. I wondered if anyone else has come across similar. 

Thanks

It's a tricky one I think! 

As it's a closed group I'm sure it would be ok, and it's being used in an educational way, so you should be covered by it that way. I know we looked into it about uploading to Tapestry and found that again, as it is a closed system, used for educational purposes, copyright laws allow you to use it. 

If someone was to make a copy and upload it though, there might be an issue, but in that situation, you're not the data owner as you haven't uploaded it, so would be covered again. 

I'm not sure many authors / publisher would be prepared to go after educators sharing their books at the moment either!
