There are various ways you can use copyrighted material in your teaching - either directly in Lectures, or posted onto Canvas/VITAL - without having to gain permission first or risk infringing copyright law.
Built into the UK copyright law are ‘Acts Permitted in relation to Copyright Works’.
These acts are often referred to as ‘Copyright Exceptions’ i.e. exceptions to copyright law.
Copyright exceptions allow LIMITED use of copyrighted material for educational purposes in lectures WITHOUT having to gain permission and WITHOUT infringing copyright law.
For ANY of the above copyright exceptions to be applied, the use of the material must ALSO come under the concept of ‘fair-dealing’ i.e.
