There is no automatic exemption for making even one unauthorized personal copy of a copyrighted work. Nevertheless, fair use provides that a teacher may make a single copy, for scholarly research or for use in teaching or preparing to teach a class, of the following works:

A chapter from a book;

An article from a periodical or newspaper;

A short story, short essay or short poem;

A chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon or picture from a book, periodical or newspaper.
