I have a question about creating courses and copyrighted material.
I’m a teacher who has used Memrise for personal goals, but I have thought about using it for my students. I thought about creating courses for them using the new vocabulary. Of course it would be most beneficial to use the vocabulary lists from the school book - but is that legal?
US Fair Use law seems to think it is and a former colleague told me that lists of words don’t count, but Germany has rather harsh laws regarding textbooks and I don’t want to spend hours creating courses and then facing criminal charges for it.
Does anyone have any experience regarding this topic?
