What is JORUM? JORUM is a digital repository service for learning materials produced inter alia by participants in projects funded by the JISC 5/99 Learning and Teaching Programme and X4L Strand A projects. Project partners: –University of Edinburgh –University of Manchester UoE will be the Licensee for the JORUM licence and will obtain the right to sub-licence access and use of the JORUM repository with any FE/HE institution within the UK.
Is there a need for a depositor licence? Yes, because: the deposited works are protected by copyright law. uses beyond the permitted uses provided for in the CDPA 1988 are envisaged. access will be provided to authorised users that have no contractual relationship with the UoE.
Draft JORUM depositor licence Point of reference for the first draft of the JORUM licence has been the CHCC collection and the CHCC contributors licence. Problems identified –The CHCC licence is limited to the incorporation of the Licensed Work in the CHCC collection and not in another database. –Is the CHCC collection a collection in a legal sense? Is it a database that can be deposited as a whole and by whom? Who owns the database rights? –Are there formal agreements with copyright owners of learning materials created for any of the other projects?
