Computer Software and Games
There are very limited provisions in the Copyright Act that allow software and games to used. The provisions that allow copyright material to be copied for teaching do not apply to software and games. If you wish to use computer software or games for teaching, you will need to purchase a licence to do so.
The University purchases licences for many different types of software that it uses for teaching, research and administrative purposes. In some cases, for example Endnote, a blanket licence is available that enables copies to be freely downloaded and used by all staff and students. In most cases, individual or group licences are purchased by departments for their staff. For more information see: Software and applications.
Further information about staff roles and responsibilities in regard to software is available at Software Copyright: Roles and Responsibilities.
