Some terms and conditions may allow you to make copies, for example documents made available under an ‘open access’ licence such as Creative Commons.
Under the terms of the Copyright Agency Statutory Licence agreement, Curtin staff and students are permitted to copy and communicate text and graphic material (e.g. articles, images, photographs, tables, diagrams, etc.) from public websites for educational purposes. For text materials, limits apply - one article per journal or newspaper issue, 10% of the words, or one chapter of a book.
If relying on the Statutory Licence agreement, access must be restricted to Curtin staff and students and any electronic communication of the material must include the electronic warning notice
When linking to websites, make sure you do not link to sites containing copyright infringing material, i.e. third-party copyright material copied without permission. Linking to infringing material is also a copyright infringement as you are authorising or facilitating an infringement.
If you use material from a website, remember to correctly acknowledge the source, including the URL
