Copying for educational use
Copying for educational purposes is permitted provided there is
a sufficient acknowledgement and, in the case of the first category
below (giving or receiving of instruction) provided such purpose is
non-commercial. However the Act is clear that the copying must not
be done by a "reprographic process" which excludes photocopying or
scanning a work.
In order to permit copying by a reprographic means, (such as
photocopying or scanning), many educational establishments obtain a
licence from the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA).
Educational purposes fall into two broad categories:
- for the giving or receiving of instruction, like teaching
students how to make a film;
- for the purposes of examination (setting, communicating and
answering the questions).
