Copyright compliance policy
An updated Copyright Compliance Policy came into effect on the 29 July 2020. It introduces a new separate procedures document for the use of copyright materials in teaching which outlines when and how material can be used. Staff are obliged to use Course Readings when making certain categories of copyright material online for students. This includes any material copied under our educational statutory license, e.g. pdfs of book chapters and copies of television broadcasts, as well as music recordings copied under our music license.
Copyright induction course
The copyright induction course is available to all University of Adelaide staff. This online course covers the basic principles of copyright law, including how you can appropriately use copyright and open licensed material in your teaching and research. It is a required induction component for most new staff members, but existing staff are also encouraged to refresh their knowledge. The course takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
