Okla. Admin. Code § 210:1-3-7 - Copyright Laws

(a) Except in special circumstances, Departmentally-produced materials shall not be copyrighted but instead be freely copied and used by local districts and other educators. However, permission is not granted by this statement for copies or excerpts to be used out of context which might present the material as being in conflict with Board policy, rules, regulations, or with the law.
(b) All use of copyrighted materials (meaning all printed publications, films, filmstrips, videotapes, and computer programs) by Department Staff shall follow federal and state rules, regulations, statutes, and judicial interpretations. If information is excerpted, credit shall be given by recognizing the source(s) of the copied material. When needed, written permission must be received before copyrighted materials are reproduced.
(c) The Board establishes for the State Department of Education that some reproduction of copyright materials will be permitted, in accordance with Federal Copyright Guidelines, for purposes of criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including limited multiple copying for instructional use), scholarships, or research. Further,
(1) that each section administrator should be familiar with the limitations imposed by the Copyright Act of 1986 (Title 17 of the United States Code, Sections 106-108, 504 ) or Copyright Officer Circular R21;
(2) that proper written permissions be obtained before copyrighted materials are produced; and
(3) that on such materials the copyright statement and permission statement be used.
(d) Since the copyrighting guidelines specify that the regulations of copyright material shall not be directed by a higher authority, the administrator of the printing services section shall be the interpreter of the guidelines for permissible reproduction of materials in the Department.
