Copyright Issues in E-Learning



Among the several legal issues involved in the production and exploitation of e-learning contents, copyright and intellectual property deserve special attention, not only because of its strategic and economic importance in any e-learning project, but mainly because of the intricacies that may derive from the different domestic laws involved as a result from the ubiquitous nature of the Internet. For a successful and peaceful production and exploitation of e-content, one needs to take into account the copyright laws, any pitfalls they may generate and adopt the best contractual practices to avoid them. This chapter will identify these issues and examine the existing legal framework from an international perspective.
