Copyright as it affects faculty

    8. How to use Internet documents
Digital texts and objects are also protected by copyright. The use of web pages and podcast software must conform with intellectual property laws. In essence, a document that is readily accessible may not necessarily be permitted to be

- copied
- sent to third parties
- placed on a social networking site
- published on a site other than the one on which it was found.

Even in the case of texts found online, permission from the author has to be sought for their re-use.
Copyright laws provide that permission is required to make an electronic copy of a hard-copy document, a hard copy of an electronic document, or to transfer a document from one system to another.
