Copyright guide for lectures
Images in your PowerPoint Presentations
You may include when recording your lectures:
* any image you source from the open web*
* any image from a hardcopy source (as long as an electronic copy of the image is not available for sale).
When referencing in your PowerPoint, include the URLs where you sourced your images.
* If you click an “I agree” box on the web prior to copying the image, then you are then bound by the terms you agree to.
Note: When using images from the Internet, you will help reduce our licence costs by using Creative Commons images. Simply source the images you want by doing a CC Search and then clicking on the "Google Images" box.
TV and Radio programs
You may record any material copied off air from Australian TV or radio (including Pay TV). This includes current affair news TV material held in the Library's TVNews.
Displayed Web Pages
Freely available web pages may be displayed and recorded. Remember to reference these in your lecture.
YouTube clips and Films
You may show and record clips from commercial films and YouTube in your lectures as long as you are critically analysing or reviewing these clips in your lectures. Otherwise you must turn off the lecture recording whenever you show these (unless the film has been copied off-air from TV or the YouTube clip has a Creative Commons licence).
If your desired use is outside the above limits, contact the Information Policy Officer who can often enable special case usage for educational purposes. You can also get permission from the copyright owner.
