When using copyrighted materials, all staff are reminded that it is important to comply with UK copyright legislation and the University of Kent Copyright policy and guidelines.
The University's Copyright and Software Licensing and Compliance Officer can answer specific questions on the use of third-party copyrighted materials in E-Learning, and has given a presentation on this subject [video] at a previous E-Learning Forum, July 2013.
The University policies and guidelines relating to University, staff, and student copyright can be found in the Policy Statement on Intellectual Property available from the Kent Enterprise website. Amongst other policies it is important to note that this document clarifies that the University does not claim ownership of scholarly work (Appendix A 3.2), but does claim ownership over teaching materials (Appendix A 3.1).
