Conclusion • We can reuse most* material downloaded from internet, if: – We mention the creator of the material (Person / URL). – Use it for non commercial purpose (teaching NU students) – Use it on our internal network Moodle only (not upload on YouTube or other external sites). 15 (*): Disclaimer : This is based on limited study of available material. There may be some situations in which this conclusion may not hold completely. Please seek additional legal opinion.
