Question

02 Are student allowed to record classes and publish it to be used by others? Do they need permission from the lecturer for that?

Answer

The student that publishes a written-out class recording, violates copyright. If the student also publishes the video of the class, he or she also violates the lecturer’s Image right and potentially also that of fellow students.

Some departments found out that, without their consent or that of the lecturer, teaching materials were published online. Students do not realise that this is a violation. That is why the Administrative and Legal Affairs department has written the following text. We advise departments to add this to all Blackboard courses and it will also be added to the student charter.

Respect the copyright to the teaching material.

All teaching material is protected by copyright. Students may not make photocopies of teaching material, exams and lectures other than for their own study purposes. In addition, teaching material may not be further distributed in any format. Deliberate violation of copyright is a criminal offence. The University of Groningen will take appropriate measures upon detecting such violations.
