UCL Copyright advice
Intellectual Property Rights, and in particular Copyright, play an important role in the work undertaken by the UCL community both in terms of academic output and also in the use and repurposing of materials to support teaching and learning across the institution.
Copyright is an important issue that needs to be considered before any material is re-used either in a traditional classroom context or within Moodle. The following pages pull together advice from across UCL and have been designed to address the different types of enquiries that the various members of the UCL community may have regarding their own copyright or the re-use of materials.
Find advice here on issues relating to any work you create, including links to the UCL IPR policies for staff and students, information on how to use schemes such as Creative Commons to allow your work to be used by others.
Advice on the re-use of copyright material in your own work (for students and staff), and lots of information for UCL staff who are compiling materials to support teaching (both online and in the classroom)
Please consult our growing bank of questions to see if someone has had a similar query. Also find details of copyright training sessions and links to further information.
