Copyright Information: Overview
What is copyright?
Copyright isa federal law that grants creators of original works of authorship or artistic works some exclusive rights regarding their creations. Creators have the right to:
Make derivative works/adaptions
Perform by means of audio digital transmission (sound recordings)
This means that only the copyright holder can exercise these rights. In order to do things like photocopy a journal article or book chapter (from either a print or electronic source) to distribute in class, scan an article or book chapter to place in Sakai, or create a course pack from material found in print sources or online, a permission or clearance from the copyright holder MAY be needed.
Bear in mind that these rights can, and often are, sold or transferred, either as a bundle or individually. The original author can be the rights holder, but, in many cases, it is the publisher that holds these rights.
