The fair use regulations provides the opportunity for "educators" to use
copyright protected materials.  Any individual using copyrighted materials
without a formal school affiliation is not within the law.  "Educational
purposes" does not mean "the general education of the public" So if you are
using materials to teach in a formal classroom you are allowed fair use
access to copy right protected works.

Just for clarity
