Copyright and legal re-use

Contains information on using (and re-using) material that isn't your own, and the limits that apply to this use.

Attributing images, logos and trademarks

The University is covered by a remuneration notice with the Copyright Agency that permits the copy and communicate of text, images and notated music subject to certain conditions.

Images can be communicated for teaching purposes in presentations for lectures and uploaded to the Learning Management System (Blackboard), as well as be used for research or study by current staff and students. The amount you can copy from these works isn’t specified in the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth), but Fair Dealing applies to these and other types of works such as diagrams, artworks, films, TV programs and CDs.

However, you must provide the relevant attribution next to the photograph, or close by (eg on the edge or bottom of the page) if that is too obtrusive.
