Basically, as a lecturer the intellectual property rights to educational material that you compile is yours. If you use others’ protected works in your educational material, you do not take over the copyright for these materials. Please pay attention to the rules according to the Copydan Writing (in Danish) and VISDA (in Danish) agreements as to the use of others’ works.

If you are a lecturer at University of Copenhagen, how much may you copy, scan, and print to your students? And what about the use of photos and movies in your lectures? Settle your questions on this page where we outline and explain the rules.
Below please find information on the current rules regarding copying literary materials in accordance with the agreement between Copydan Writings and University of Copenhagen. You can find the agreement here (in Danish).
Please notice that the agreement does not replace subscription and licence agreements that Copenhagen University Library has concluded with other rights holders like licence agreements on digital journals and digital books available in REX.
University of Copenhagen has entered into an agreement with Copydan Visuals that enables lecturers and students at University of Copenhagen to use all forms of pictures protected by copyright for educational and studying purposes. You find the agreement here (in Danish). The agreement is currently prolonged and therefore still valid.
In addition, University of Copenhagen has concluded an agreement with the picture agency Colourbox on free use of pictures for the employees and students of the university. Please pay attention to the fact that the agreement with Colourbox works totally independently of the agreement with Copydan Visuals.
University of Copenhagen has not reached any direct agreement with Copydan AVU-medier leaving you any opportunity to show entire films during courses. Therefore, at present you may not show entire films for educational purposes unless you have directly obtained permission for showing the films from the copyright holders.
University of Copenhagen is affiliated with an AVU-Basis (in Danish) and an AVU-Plus (in Danish) agreement through the Ministry of Higher Education and Science and the State and University Library. These two agreements permit lecturers at University of Copenhagen to use telecasts, promotion films, documentaries etc. from a wide choice of both Danish and foreign channels.
