Copyright Help on the Web

The JISC Collections online copyright activity tool aims to inform and educate practitioners in the FE and HE sectors in the UK about some of the key issues in using copyrighted material in a digital online environment and the role of JISC Collections in the provision of solutions to these issues. The tool is targeted at teachers and lecturers in FE and HE. It will also be useful for curriculum managers, learning technologists, learning resources staff and any staff who deal with digital resources.

JISC have also created a Copyright Toolkit for authors who wish to publish journal articles, and an animation "Intellectual Property Rights in the Web 2.0 world for individuals working with online content. This animation makes reference to the online diagnostic tool Web2Rights and provides a set of relevant copyright links.

The Strategic Content Alliance (SCA) has created an IPR Toolkit to assist in managing copyright. The SCA toolkit is very practical and provides top tips for licensing and on how to seek permissions from copyright holders, including an IPR risk assessment. The toolkit also supplies a range of templates for requesting and granting licenses, permission request emails and consent forms. All practical tools may be adapted for local use.
