Copyright: Teaching

Guides teaching staff on many areas of copyright including limits to what can be provided to students, using images, screening video content in class, eReserve and the addition of material to the service.

YouTube and video-on-demand

The Statutory Licence does not cover material from video-on-demand and catch-up services such as Foxtel*, Stan, Netflix, or Presto. Material from these services cannot be played in class, or shared via Blackboard.

Material available from services such as Freeview and iView may be covered under the Statutory Licence providing the material is identical to that already broadcast on TV, and providing it is available for download. If it is only available in streaming mode, using software to capture the material will infringe copyright.

*SUGGESTION: Please have a look at EduTV (subscribed University Library eResource). It contains lots of legally accessible material that has been recorded from Foxtel channels.
