  • 1. EDED 20491: ICTs for Learning Design Information in this presentation sourced from the Australian Copyright Council (ACC) ( ©
  • 2. What is copyright? “ Copyright is a type of legal protection for people who produce things like writing, images, music and films. It is a legal right to prevent others from doing certain things (such as copying and making available online) without permission .” (ACC) Copyright law in Australia is established by the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) and court cases
  • 3. What is protected?
    • Copyright protects individuals, groups and organisations’ creative output
    • It protects the form or way an idea or information is expressed, not the idea or information itself
    • For example, Stephanie Myer’s Twilight books are protected under copyright but information about vampires generally is not.
  • 4. Copyright is universal Copyright applies to work as soon as it is created (provided the creator hasn’t breached anyone else’s copyright!). Creators do not need to register it or put a copyright notice on it. The protection is free and automatic.
  • 5. So how can we use other people’ work?
    • Copyright owners can give others permission to use, copy, broadcast, make available their work by “assigning” (transfer) or licensing their rights.
    • For example, Flickr Creative Commons license arrangements
  • 6. Obtaining permission
    • “ You need copyright permission if:
    • you use something protected by copyright ,
    • you use a ' substantial part ' (this may not be a big part),
    • the copyright has not expired ,
    • your use is controlled by the copyright owner (the copyright owner has the exclusive right to make the use), and
    • your use is not covered by a special exception ”
    • (ACC)
  • 7.
    • Depending on what item of work you wish to use, copyright permission should be sought from:
    • Collecting societies (such as AMCOS, ARIA and/or AMPRA for music copyright)
    • Licensing organisations
    • Copyright clearance services
    • The individual copyright holder
    • A small part of a work may still be subject to copyright permissions if it is an important, distinctive or essential element
  • 8. Special Exemption for Educational Purposes
    • Copyright material used for educational purposes is generally able to be used without permission, subject to certain conditions.
    • Do not assume that any school use of copyrighted material is permissible! A common trap is if the work is to be available publicly (this includes publishing on the web)
    • Useful summary information to guide schools is available here .
  • 9. Further investigation required
    • Look for information in your school about copyright permissions and licenses
    • Always err on the side of need to seek permission before using, reproducing, broadcasting or adapting a copyrighted work publicly.
  • 10. Useful links and resources
    • Creative Commons music sites
    • Australian Copyright Council
    • Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department
