Independent Colleges and RTOs
Sourcing quality teaching material and diverse content from textbooks, research papers, newspapers, reports, websites, blogs, journals and newsletters is essential to meeting both student and teacher expectations and to achieving the best possible education outcomes. But you may be surprised to learn that unless you have permission to reuse content, you could be infringing someone’s copyright and breaching the Copyright Act.
In addition to arrangements with peak bodies for schools and universities, the Copyright Agency also has individual agreements with more than 1,000 other education providers, including private independent colleges, RTOs, training arms, community colleges and kindergartens.
