STUDYPASS COPYRIGHT GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS

In order to upload and sell your notes on our website, we urge you to carefully read through the below information on the importance of respecting copyright law.

What does the term ‘copyright’ refer to?

Every author has a legal right to their original works and have control over who, where and how it is published, printed, performed or filmed. This refers to the author’s copyright over literary works.

Why is copyright in place?

Copyright protects an author’s works from being copied and published by someone else under a different name. Copyright laws aim to prevent unauthorised use or replication of original works. This forces fellow authors to use their imagination and come up with their own original ideas.

How is copyright put in place?

The moment you create an original work, copyright law is automatically and freely applied. You automatically own the full rights to the use and redistribution of your original work. If you intend on publishing original works, it is recommended that your full name and a date is declared on your documents to show ownership. The correct format begins with the © sign, the date and your name. This applies to any published work – both digital and print.

Which specific rights fall under copyright?

The right to publish work

Publishing works refers to the printing of a book, television show broadcasts or releasing new music. It also applies to uploading videos onto YouTube or other streaming platforms. In simple terms it is publicising one’s original works through publishing, printing, broadcasting, filming, performing, selling or uploading.

The right to recreate work

Also referred to as reproducing or duplicating, this is copying someone else’s work as if it had been cloned. It does not have to be identical to the original but must exhibit clear similarities. Even partially editing an original work is considered a copyright infringement. For example remixing a song or making a movie adaptation of a novel, requires permission from the originator.

Ethics

A lot of work, time, energy, money and passion goes into creating original works. One must always look at the ethics of replicating or editing original works without the originator’s permission.

What does not fall under copyright law?

It is not acceptable to reproduce original works, however, the ideas or concepts the works are built on are not protected by copyright. For example, it is not acceptable to replicate an algebra textbook word for word. However, because algebra deals with set formulas and rules, anyone is allowed to create their own original algebra textbook.

Do I always have to get the author’s permission first?

If you plan on replicating or editing the work, then yes, the creator’s permission is required. However if you are quoting a written work in your own works (and using proper citation/credits), permission is not required.

How does STUDYPASS apply copyright law?

No student is allowed to plagiarise original works. You may only upload your summaries/notes to our site on condition it is YOUR original work and is not in any way plagiarised. It is therefore not acceptable to upload a scanned copy of a textbook, someone else’s notes or a lecturer’s notes onto our site.

By uploading your work on our website, you retain all rights over the redistribution of said document. We are not responsible or liable for the content within the document or the sale of documents.

Tips for summarising textbooks without plagiarising?

  • Your notes are not in any way a direct copy or a scan of an original work
  • When/if quoting original works, you have used citations that adhere to APA guidelines.
  • The document is entirely written in your OWN words
  • Making citations when paraphrasing
  • A clear bibliography or list of sources
  • Changing the structure and layout of sentences or paragraphs

By uploading a document to our website, you agree that you are ultimately legally responsible for any copyright infringements within your documents.

Plagiarism prevention 101:

The moment you copy someone’s work without citing the source, you have committed plagiarism. This can easily be avoided by writing the text in your own words. Not only is this ethical, it is also the best way to learn! Describing a source in your own words demonstrates you understand the concepts being discussed and help you retain information.

A good tip would be to read text once or twice, put your book away and then write a summary of what you understand without looking at the text directly (unless you need substatiantive quotes).

When using images downloaded from the internet in your document, ensure you are using unlicensed images that are free for public use. If you need to use a licensed image, request the photographer’s permission and/or cite the source.

You may hyperlink to copyrighted works on condition they have been published and made freely available to all.

Copyright Infringements & Take Down Notices

If you feel a student has violated copyright law or if your original work has been reproduced without permission, we invite you to lodge a claim with us. Please fill out the request form and our team will review the information provided.
