Frequently Ask Questions

A faculty member has long used a printed coursepack for his course. This year, he would like to place these items on KATIE electronically. Since this is the first use in digital form, does he have to clear copyright on the items?

Yes. The use is not the first use of the item, nor is it spontaneous. Copyright is not media specific but relates to the use of the intellectual content. In this case, copyright clearance must be sought.
