So copyright covers a wide array of materials and activities. Luckily there are educational exceptions and licences that allow teachers to do a lot with copyright material without needing to seek permission from the individual copyright owners.
We’ve negotiated contracts for all the Schools in Australia. These contracts take into consideration everything that needs to be taken into consideration. So we’ve done all of this for you. The easiest way to know what you can copy and communicate is to find out what these licences say. To do this you need to visit our website, get in touch with your CAG representative, or get in touch with us. There will be a few times when you need to look outside the licence. Such as when you enter into contracts to use certain material. But for general copyright material, the licence we’ve negotiated on your behalf will tell you what you can and can not do.
Teachers/schools have rights to copy under: Statutory Licences Voluntary Licences Free Use Exceptions Both allow teachers to re-use copyright materials, without the permission of the copyright owner. The array of licences that the NCU negotiates on behalf of the schools takes into consideration A and B – statutory licences and voluntary licences. Category C are completely free exceptions. Given to educational institutions in the Copyright Act.
This is how you’re able to copy entire works. This will frequently come into play with internet sources. “ Schools /TAFE institutes can copy a whole work on the Internet if it has not been separately published and is not available within a reasonable time at an ordinary commercial price .” Note that a reasonable time is only a guideline and can change with the circumstances. If 6 months/30 days is not reasonable to your specific circumstance, then those guidelines may not apply. This will be a judgment call based on the circumstances, and you are more than welcome to give us a ring if you’d like a second opinion.
A teacher can quote and copy extracts from a website with no terms and conditions if it is done for educational purposes. This is covered by the Part VB Statutory Licence and will be remunerable under the Part VB Statutory Licence. Note that a website can be copied under the statutory licence, but that is paid for. Every single time website material is copied, performed or communicated.
Practical way to include: include a link on the resource to the notice
Must see the notice before they log on/access material Provide a link TO the notice ON the copy
The music licences are relatively broad and allows a lot of uses of music. Especially sound recordings. We have a lot of information covering this on our website.
Note the difference between s 28 and s 200AB: s28 only allows performing or communicating in the classroom. It does not allow copying. S 200AB does allow copying.
2 Educational instruction includes teaching (in a classroom or remotely), preparing to teach, compiling resources for student homework or research and doing anything else for the purpose of teaching Note that just in case copying will generally not be sufficient. Eg – I’ll copy this in case I need it sometime in the future. You should have a particular instructional purpose in mind. 3 Your proposed use must not conflict with the normal exploitation of the work nor unreasonably prejudice the interests of the copyright owner. Your use may be unreasonable in his sense if (for example): You can purchase the material or obtain a licence for your proposed use on reasonable terms If the material is commercially available, then you must purchase the material You have used more than you need Your use must be narrow and specific. You should only use as much of the material as you require for your specific purpose. And access to the material should be limited to the students who need it. You expose the material to a risk of piracy You should not be making copyright material available for further copying and reuse. This would be unreasonable prejudicial to the interests of the copyright owner in being able to control use of their work in the future. Okay to make the material available on a password protected online space just for students and teachers. But not okay to post on a public website or emailing around to students
Teachers are usually not permitted to copy from DVDs. Most commercial DVDs (eg feature films, documentaries and television series) are protected by access control technological protection measures (ATPMs). ATPMs are technologies which prevent a user from easily accessing and copying the content on a DVD. It is illegal to circumvent an ATPM under the Copyright Act. Making a digital copy of a commercial DVD is likely to involve circumventing the ATPM and therefore is illegal. See information sheet ‘Technological Protection Measures and the Copyright Amendment Act 2006’: http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/526
Total licensing fees for the schools in 2012: over 83 million. So these tips are simply looking to keep those fees down. It involves copying the HTML code of the film, which is often displayed in a box near the film, and pasting it onto your website. The result of this is, rather than displaying the link, it will show a small screen of the film on your website.
Attributing material is important to ensure that original material created by a student, teacher or jurisdiction or that has been licensed is removed from survey data and therefore is not paid for. Applies to both photocopied and digital material
What are Open Educational Resources? Resources created and released openly – open license is key. Free as in free beer (no cost) and free as in freedom (free to use, repurpose and re-share) Commonly defined as digital materials offered free for educators, students and self learners to use, re-use and re-distribute for teaching, learning and research. They often rely on the use of common "open" licences, such as the Creative Commons licences. They are different to traditional distribution models which generally require remuneration and largely restrict the rights of end-users to copy, re-use and re-purpose material. “ OER are teaching, learning, and research materials in any medium that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open licence that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.” Website terms and conditions can be unclear, confusing and/or difficult to understand. In some cases, there are no terms and conditions at all. Often, ‘educational use’ may not have been specifically considered when website terms and conditions were drafted. In many cases, website terms and conditions refer to 'personal' or 'non-commercial' use, but not to 'educational use' As a result, the intention of the website publisher with regards to educational use of their site is unknown. OER overcomes a lot of the above tensions.
You can do more with OER as compared with 'traditional' copyright material
How do OER work? Open licences key aspect of this – eg Creative Commons Creative Commons works to make it easy for creators to share … to realize the full potential of the internet – universal access to research, education, full participation in culture – to drive a new era of development, growth, and productivity. CC Licenses make it easy and legal to share… and, as we all know, the core part of any OER definition is the educational resource is either Open license In the public domain So anyone can: reuse, revise, remix and redistribute.
can do this right at creativecommons.org via our license chooser engine step 1 is to choose the conditions that you want to attach to the work all cc licenses require attribution to the original author of the work after that users can decide which conditions they want to apply, aka whether to prohibit commercial uses, whether to require that downstream users also reshare, whether the work should only be able to be redistributed “as-is”
step 2 is to simply receive the license there are 6 CC licenses that reflect a spectrum of rights for the photos I share on Flickr, I use the Attribution only license, which means that anyone can download, copy, distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon them, even commercially, as long as they give me credit
500M+ CC licensed works online today CC is used by a wide variety of people and organizations, including Culture Science Government and public sector information Education
Wikipedia, which about 2 years ago merged all their content into using CC attribution sharealike license 17 million Wikipedia articles across all languages 8.5 million media files in Wikimedia Commons database. All are available under a free license.
Photo websites like Flickr, with over 175 million CC-licensed photos. The following museums and institutes have photostreams of CC licensed images on Flickr: Smithsonian Institute http://www.flickr.com/photos/smithsonian/ Imperial War Museum http://www.flickr.com/photos/imperialwarmuseum/ Library of Congress http://www.flickr.com/photos/library_of_congress/ National Maritime Museum http://www.flickr.com/photos/nationalmaritimemuseum/ George Eastman House http://www.flickr.com/photos/george_eastman_house/ National Media Museum http://www.flickr.com/photos/nationalmediamuseum/
Instead we have ad-hoc FFE initiatives in Australian Schools and TAFEs. Differences between FFE and OER: Like OER, FFE materials are free for educational use BUT unlike OER, FFE cannot be shared with the public at large and usually cannot be modified or adapted. Limits use that can be made – must be maintained in original form and cannot onward share or re-use
FFE examples in Australia: National Education Access Licence for Schools (NEALS) – jursidiction-owned/developed educational materials AEShareNet Licences -> now being transitioned to CC NDLRN (formally The Le@rning Federation (TLF)) -> now being transitioned to CC Learning Object Repository Network (LORN)
NSW Dept of Education has released a range of interactive teaching resources under CC licences.
Other examples of OER in Australia include: Move from FFE to OER (as seen on previous slide): TLF materials shortly to be released under CC AESharenet currently going through a transition phase - we hope to CC licences ACARA has released the Australian National Curriculum under a CC licence Tasmanian Polytechnic has embarked on a project (using WikiEducator) to incorporate OER into teaching. The institute is currently working on a state-wide eLearning Strategy for 2012-2014 which will include policy recommendations to use and contribute to OER. Smartcopying website – full of useful educational resources re Creative Commons and OER, as well as much other information about copyright for educators. Itself open to use under a CC licence.
Power of CC licensing in on-line world is searchability!! Standardised open approach allows coding and search-engines to recognise, search and discover content that is open for use. CC licensed resources aid in search and discovery; the licenses clarify to educators, students the rights available to them for use, remix, and resharing 2010 survey of US teachers in their use of technology and OER showed that 88% of teachers use Google to locate OER CC licensed content filtering is integrated with Google search engines via the advanced search features; Google indexing things on the web whether it has a CC licensed attached to it whereas a straight up search for a learning topic can return millions of hits, and resources teachers don’t know whether they can include in the lessons, CC filtered search returns resources that have been licensed under CC CC has also been developing an experimental OER search prototype called DiscoverEd
.... Search from Creative Commons' own website
Higher Ed MIT OCW- the largest OCW project, sharing course content from all 1,900 MIT courses
Higher Ed Stanford getting into the game – several years ago opened several undergraduate courses for free, this year another 7 courses offered. Eg Introduction to AI – over 100,000 enrollments in 1 st weeks! Anyone can sign up, watch lectures, have their homework graded, and take the exams. Everyone who passes will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the course and marking how they ranked compared to others in the class, including the Stanford students who’ll be attending in person. Taught by professors who are some of the biggest names in the field. Director of Research at Google, the former senior computer scientist at NASA... UC Berkley, Yale, others all doing similar things (See here for further info -> http://singularityhub.com/2011/08/18/100000-sign-up-for-stanfords-open-class-on-artificial-intelligence-classes-with-1-million-next/)
Government : US – eg the White House – release of PSI under CC licence – the 2009 Directive on Open Government - which directed government departments to take specific steps to 'expand access to information by making it available online in open formats' and the 2011 Presidential Memorandum on Regulatory Compliance - directive to departments to release data-sets under open licence US – TAACCCT grants – in Jan 2011 - US$2 billion to fund creation of community college course materials, on condition all released under CC licence UK – uses the “Open Government Licence” to release much PSI information to public for use and re-use UK – further to a policy of open access to PSI recommended in 2009 - Power of Information Taskforce Report

4242YouTubeCan I copy YouTube videos for use in class or as part of a resource?• There is no clear answer.• You may be able copy a YouTube video and use it for educationalinstruction under s 200 AB….. BUT the terms and conditions of YouTube may not strictly allow this.• It is arguable that the terms and conditions do not form a contract andtherefore are not enforceable because sufficient notice is not provided.• YouTube now allows video owners to upload their videos under aCreative Commons licence so they can share their work with others.Teachers Tube is a great alternative: www.teachertube.comFor further information: “YouTube: Use by Teachers” : http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/855“Teachers Tube: Use by Teachers”: http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/858
4343YouTube: Linking andStreaming Practical alternatives to copying videos off YouTubeinclude:• Directly streaming YouTube videos in class (permittedunder s 28) – from YouTube website or via a linkembedded on another website.• Linking or embedding the YouTube video. Not acopyright activity - you are not copying the content.See information sheets: “YouTube: Use by Teachers”http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/855“Performance and Communication of works and audio-visual materialin class – What am I allowed to do?”http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/544
iTunes The schools new recordings agreement(AMCOS|ARIA|APRA licence) overrides thegeneral terms of iTunes What that means:• Previously: iTunes had the sameissues/concerns that YouTube does• Now: Schools can use music from iTunesfor educational purposes without anyconcerns44
Smartcopying tips…Link – link or embed material wheneverpossible. Dont download or copy.Providing a link is not a copyright activity. Youare not copying the content, just providing areference to its location elsewhere.45
Smartcopying tips…Label – always attribute the source.• All material created and used for educational purposes shouldbe properly attributed.• Attribution info needs to include details of the copyright ownerand/or author, where the material was sourced from and when.• Attributing is important to ensure that we dont pay licence feesfor material we already own or are allowed to use• eg teacher/school/student created contentSee labelling information sheet at:http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/53246
Smartcopying tips…Limit – ensure access to material islimited to relevant students only Once material is communicated to an entire institute/campus orjurisdiction, the risk of copyright infringement increasesdramatically.Limiting access is an important cost management practice.Collecting societies believe that the value of content increaseswith the number of people who can access it.47
Smartcopying tips…Clear out unwanted content regularlyMaterial copied and communicated under theStatutory Licences is paid for again for every12 months it remains live.Clearing out material that is no longerrequired is one practical way of managing thecopyright costs.48
Smartcopying tips…Clear out unwanted content regularlyTwo options:Archive – for material that is not currently beingused but is likely to be used in the future.Move it into a closed area on the repository orelsewhere online where it can only be accessed byone person, such as the school librarian, ICTManager or teacher who uploaded the material torepository in the first place.49
Smartcopying tips…Clear out unwanted content regularlyTwo options:Delete – for material that the school no longerrequires for educational purposes should becompletely deleted from the repository.50
Smartcopying tips…Use Open Education Resources• Material whose owner has given permission for thematerial to be used for educational purposes, forfree• Depending on the licence, OER can also bemodified and shared by teachers and students.51
52LinkLabelLimitClear out contentConsider OERSmartcopying:
54Some CopyrightChallenges• While there is a lot that teachers can copy, the licence schemes andfree use exceptions are restrictive and complicated:• Teachers are burdened with complex copying limits and mandatorynotice requirements under the Statutory Licences.• Teachers cannot modify, share or remix material except in limitedcircumstances.• The material can only be made available to parents and the communityin limited circumstances.Free for education, open education and creativecommons material is a great alternative!See list of Free for education/Open education resources on smartcopying at:http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/933See Creative Commons information pack on smartcopying at:http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/953
55Open EducationResources• OER are teaching and learning materials that are freelyavailable online for everyone to use, whether you are ateacher, student or self learner.• OER includes resources of all sorts: worksheets,curriculum materials, lectures, homework assignments,quizzes, class activities, pedagogical materials, gamesand many more resources from around the world.See: www.oercommons.org
56OER: Fundamental Values•OER share some fundamentalvalues:• Resources are free for any individual to use• Are licensed for unrestricted distribution• Possibility of adaptation, translation, re-mix,and improvement.
OER in a nutshell OER is about creating repositories ofmaterial which are free to:AccessUseModifyShare57
59OER and Creative Commons• Most OER resources use Creative Commons(CC) licences.• This is because CC licences are well knownblanket licences that are free and easy to use.• A creator needs only to do one thing - selectthe type of licence they want from the CCwebsite!
OER: How it all works What is CC?• CC creates a “some rights reserved”model.• The copyright owner retains copyrightownership in their work while invitingcertain uses of their work by the public.• CC licences create choice and options forthe copyright owner.60
Attributing CC material CC requires that you label materials with:• author/copyright owner,• title and source,• type of CC licence that applies• a link to the licence terms. It is important to always check whether the creator has specified aparticular attribution. Open Attribute (http://openattribute.com) is a tool recently developedby Mozilla Drumbeat to assist users of CC material properly attributethe CC material.For further information on attributing CC material, see:http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/scw/go/pid/95668
