Using Copyrighted Materials on a Publicly Accessible Website

There are many instances where fair dealing will apply to uses of limited amounts of copyrighted works online. For digital course distributions, however, you should use Blackboard or eReserves. Posting course materials to a publicly accessible personal or class website would likely be unfair and not qualify for fair dealing as it does not limit the number of people in the distribution. Additionally, the Internet exception requires that material used under the provision be distributed primarily to students and staff of the university.
