It is University policy that all third party copyright materials for students who are enrolled in Murdoch University units with offshore partners will be provided via My Unit Readings. This policy includes the following teaching materials:
journal articles, chapters, etc that are usually compiled in unit readers
slide presentations that include third party materials: diagrams, photographs, cartoons, etc
UILGs that include third party materials: diagrams, photographs, cartoons, etc
any supplementary readings required during the semester
The licence under which we copy and distribute course readers and supplementary readings to students within Australia does not cover the provision of a single copy of a third party copyright work (in any format) to a partner who then prints or otherwise reproduces the material at the offshore site.
Licensed teaching materials
Attention should also be paid to course materials that are used by the University under other licences or contracts: these may not cover the use of the materials in another jurisdiction. The terms of any contract or licence should be confirmed before providing such materials to students offshore.
Audio Visual (AV) materials
There are several types of licences for DVD/Video recordings and screening websites which must be considered before using any AV item.
It is important to be aware that you may infringe copyright if you record or copy AV materials without an appropriate licence, the copyright owner's permission, or the protection of s.200AB. Copyright infringement can incur severe penalties for both individuals and the University.
Further information about the use of AV materials may be found on the Library's Copyright Matters webpage and in this guide.
Websites and online content use for educational purposes
For further information on how to use online content, please refer to the Library's Copyright Matters webpage or this guide.

Works created by University staff in the course of their employment e.g. a unit guide (that does not contain third party images, etc) are not subject to the above provisions, and may be sent in any convenient format to the partner for reproduction at the offshore site.
