Learning Management System Copyright Notice

Faculty/Staff

Memorial University is committed to compliance with Canadian Copyright law. All copying at Memorial University (paper, digital or otherwise) must be permitted by the relevant license or covered under the education exceptions or fair dealing provisions found in the Copyright Act. Memorial University’s Copyright Policy, which includes the Fair Dealing Requirements and a wealth of other resources that will help you avoid copyright infringement, is available at www.mun.ca/copyright. It is crucial that you are familiar with this policy. It is your responsibility to avoid copyright infringement.
The following uses of materials do not infringe copyright:

  • Providing a link to materials on the Internet;
  • Posting materials that are in the public domain (i.e. the term of copyright has expired);
  • Posting materials in which you are the owner of the copyright (i.e. you are the author); and,
  • Posting materials where the appropriate licenses exist or have been obtained.

Pursuant to the Fair Dealing Requirements, a "short excerpt" of a work may be posted without obtaining permission from the copyright owner. Guidance for the posting of short excerpts can be found at www.mun.ca/copyright/fair_dealing.php. If an extract to be posted exceeds the limitations of a short excerpt as set out in the Fair Dealing Requirements, permission must be secured.

The Fair Dealing Requirements permit the posting of short excerpts to a password protected secure site such as D2L. By contrast, posting a copyrighted work on some other publicly accessible website would generally be considered to be copyright infringement unless it was done with the copyright owner’s consent. In addition, no more than one short excerpt from a copyrighted work may be copied and made available to students during a course, irrespective of the medium in which it is made available (e.g. online or in paper) unless permission has been secured.

Copyright Officers are available to answer your questions, provide advice on how to use copyrighted materials without infringement and secure permissions. The office is located in the G.A. Hickman Building, Room ED-2000M, and can be reached by calling (709) 864-2089/7578 or writing copyright@mun.ca.
