Legal risks Many misconceptions about Copyright law and the spectrum of the ‘Education Licence’ Copyright material incorporated into media is not covered under the education licence. Material is licensed for classroom or the library but not podcasts and YouTube.
Copyright myths Internet is Public Domain, can use anything. Using material for teaching is Fair Dealing. If you’re not charging for it, it’s alright. We’re using the material for the public good. They won’t sue a school. I won’t be personally liable.
Copyright Facts Copying small portion may still be a copyright infringement. ‘Quality’ of the work taken, not just ‘Quantity’. ‘Works’ on the internet are copyright by their owner. Material licensed for education use in classes may not be licensed for the Internet (YouTube and iTunesU).
