The portions of the CopyrightX lectures, readings, and maps consisting of original material are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License. The lectures, readings, and maps also contain excerpts of non-original material, some of which are subject to copyrights held by other parties. The use of those excerpts in CopyrightX is privileged under the fair use doctrine. However, Prof. Fisher and Harvard University lack authority to license others to use the excerpts. Thus, persons who reuse a lecture, reading assignment, or map must either remove the pertinent excerpts or ensure that they too enjoy a legal privilege to reproduce or perform them.

The case studies used to facilitate class discussions in the courses that compose CopyrightX are subject to more substantial restrictions.  To preserve the pedagogic value of the case studies, we ask that students and teachers abide by the following guidelines:

  • The student handouts may of course be distributed to students, but students should not redistribute them.
  • The slide presentations may be shown in class but, unless otherwise indicated, should not be shared with anyone who is not a CopyrightX teacher.
  • Finally, the teacher’s manuals should not be shown to or shared with anyone who is not a CopyrightX teacher.
