Copyright

Copyright law gives the owner of text, photos, paintings, films and audio/visual recordings the rights to control reproduction, publication, communication, performance and adaptation of their work. Copyright is an important component of the creative-innovation process as it promotes new ideas through giving authors and creators a set of legal rights in relation to how their work may be used, acknowledged, and rewarded.

At Victoria University, as part of the Copyright Act (1968), we have Statutory Licences that allow staff members to use copyright material for certain educational purposes. These compulsory licenses are issued through Federal Government collecting agencies and are subject to the payment of an annual fee by VU. We likewise have individual licences with major publishers allowing teaching staff to use certain copyrighted material on the Library’s catalogue, particularly journal articles and ebooks. Exceptions for copyright material for teaching apply to all aspects of the teaching process, including material placed on Learning Management Systems such as VU Collaborate.
