Copyright: An overview

Provides an overview on how Copyright applies in higher education, including Creative Commons and Open Access.

Finding material

With Creative Commons (CC) licences, creators can tell the world that they’re happy for their work to be copied, shared or even remixed. When a creator releases their work under a CC licence, you know what you can and can’t do with the work. As a result, you can freely copy, share and sometimes modify and remix CC material without having to worry about copyright, as long as you follow the licence.

There are a number of content repositories that allow you to search their website for CC licensed content. You can do this using many popular search engine and search tools.
