When building an Open Educational Resource Repository (OERR) that incorporates content from the Internet, publications, sound recordings, video and other sources, it is important to keep in mind that much of this material is subject to copyright law and use licences.
Copyright at UBC, in co-operation with the UBC Library, has created a series of five videos with accompanying text that provide information on the appropriate use of these materials in the development of an OERR. The videos explain the basics of Canadian copyright law in an educational setting, and delve into matters of using content that complies with laws and licences, including permissive licences like Creative Commons, as well as details on seeking permission to use content. Each video concludes with a set of links to webpages on the Copyright at UBC site that deliver more information and clarity about the use of copyrighted content in the Canadian educational context.
This is the first in a series of five videos that deal with copyright issues in Open Educational Resource Repositories.
