The Internet & Copyright Consider the following: “While the internet has opened amazing avenues for education and research, as well as providing an overall shared cultural experience, it has also come face to face with international copyright laws. For the most part, the “openness” of the internet is diametrically opposed to the explicitly closed nature of copyright laws.” (Weidig, 2011) (Source:

Case Study Does Copyright Matter? A lecturer is preparing a presentation for the next teaching session. They set up the presentation and put in an outline text. Then they look around for specific information from a subject association website, a web encyclopaedia and a couple of books they have at home. The encyclopaedia and an image search provide images, some of which are cropped and sized. A photograph they have taken on holiday is added. A library subscription resource provides an outline map which they annotate. A sound file from a CD makes a good start and finish. A web link to a BBC video site provides a good discussion point. The presentation is loaded into the teacher’s area of the VLE. The lecturer uses the presentation with their group the next day and gets a good response. The presentation is made available to the group through the VLE. The lecturer decides to share the resource with their colleagues using a discussion forum. Does the presentation use third-party materials.? What acknowledgements are required?
Case Study Perfect Image A lecturer, accompanied by students visit a Museum for a study trip they take photographs on cameras and mobile phones. Over the next week the lecturer will post some of the images on VLE along with student’s writing about the visit. To consider: Was permission to take photographs at the Museum organised beforehand? On the VLE is there a statement of terms and conditions of use of the photographs and writing for the audience or has the institution decidesd to use Creative Commons licence? Is there good acknowledgement of the Museum and the exhibits or events shown in the photographs?
