Case studies sought - copyright issues

Date posted: 29/05/2008

One of the JISC advisory services, TASI, are looking for case studies that illustrate either the problems people have experienced with using copyright protected images in their materials or success stories about using copyright free images.  The case studies will be very short but will illustrate to users of the online tutorial the benefits involved with changing the way they search for images.  Possible subjects for the case studies could include:

  • students that have had work rejected due to the inclusion of copyright protected images
  • lecturers that have had to remove content from VLEs or presentations/handouts
  • legal problems with use of copyright protected images on websites etc
  • benefits of using a copyright free repository/Creative Commons resource in terms of peace of mind, time saving etc
  • discovery of good locations for the provision of images perhaps within a certain subject or field of study which are free to use

Case studies will be used for a free workshop looking at strategies for locating images suitable for use within teaching and learning with particular reference to avoiding problems with copyright.  Email David Kilbey ( if you would like to contribute and please feel free to distribute this call more widely.
