Posting Copyrighted Article to a Webpage

A professor has posted his class notes on a web page available to the public. He wants to scan an article from a copyrighted journal and add it to his web page. Is it fair use?


NO. If access is open to the public, then this use is probably not a fair use. No exclusively educational purpose can be guaranteed by putting the article on the web, and such conduct would arguably violate the copyright holder's right of public distribution. If access to the web page is restricted, then it is more likely to be fair use.
