This brief Intellectual Property Guide introduces intellectual property (IP) and how this affects you as an instructor. Do you need copyright clearance for the materials you use in your course? What is the meaning of “Fair Use”? As UCLA Extension is itself an educational institution, intellectual property and copyright are key considerations for how courses are developed. Just as we expect that our students conduct themselves with respect for the intellectual contributions of their peers and their instructors, we should display a similar level of respect for the creators of the materials used in our courses.
