Fair dealing is a legal term used to establish whether a use of copyright material is lawful or whether it infringes copyright. There is no statutory definition of fair dealing - it will always be a matter of fact, degree and impression in each case. Fair dealing requires a judgement to be made. Every instance of copying is different and where the use would not adversely affect sales of the work and where the amount copied is reasonable and appropriate to the context then it is likely that it can be considered fair dealing.
PDFs of articles in Blackboard Modules
We are aware that colleagues may download PDFs of articles in our current subscribed resources to improve the ease of access for their students. It is possible to do this as long as, the journal is not on the CLA's excluded list, which you can check with their permissions tool , there is an accompanying copyright statement and we notify the CLA. We are aware that this is a considerable overhead and our Course Pack Team firstname.lastname@example.org is happy to do this, there will be no cost if we subscribe to the resource. The alternative would be for you to give a permanent link to the article. You should also contact the Course Pack team if you want to include a digitised chapter of a book we have in stock. If we have an eversion of a book you can link to the catalogue record or the book itself
