For lecturers

As a lecturer, you have to consider copyright issues when you use someone else's work in your teaching. The creator or publisher of a work has the exclusive right to reproduce and publish it, and to charge a fee for this. Including sources in a (digital) course pack or on Blackboard is a form of reproduction and publication, and is therefore bound by regulations.
