The Pandemic License is a temporary license designed to allow educators to “read an author’s works via video and audio over the internet while students are learning from home during the COVID-19 crisis.”
The rights to do this do not last forever – this is something that teachers can do for as long as the COVID-19 pandemic is happening.
Well, I guess a temporary license from major corporations to . . . check’s notes read aloud is better than no permission to read aloud . . .
If you think The Pandemic License is a great idea, you might also be interested in The Pirate Bay License.
