Unauthorized Sharing of Teaching Materials

Have you found copies of your teaching materials online?

Are you considering sharing course materials on the internet?

Instructors at UNB have the right to protect their teaching materials from being distributed online. Copyright law protects the expression of an idea in any literary, artistic, musical, or dramatic form. This would include a syllabus, presentation slides, recording of a lecture, or other teaching materials. Any copying and distribution of substantial portions (beyond quotes) of those materials need the instructor’s permission.
