Access to the internet is for your ECU work. Authentication of access (your standard University username and password) is now required when using a University machine to access Internet sites outside of the ECU network.
All material published on the Internet is automatically protected by copyright. Although viewing material on the Internet is free, downloading it for storage or printing is a ‘reproduction’ under Australian copyright law and generally requires the permission of the copyright owner.
Downloading may not infringe copyright where a single production (copy) of the material is made in accordance with the ‘fair dealing’ provisions of the Copyright Act for the purposes of personal study or research. Use of the material can be limited by specific conditions (e.g., for educational or non-commercial purposes) or may be unrestricted. Often websites will include a copyright notice, which describes what use can be made of the material.
The University is currently developing guidelines on the use of social media sites and YouTube in lectures/teaching. Please consult the ECU website for up-to-date information on this.
