In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Academic Staff Members (ASMs) at Memorial University are using online technologies to teach, engage in scholarship, and perform academic service in new ways. ASMs should be aware that the use of these online tools can raise important privacy and intellectual property issues.
Students are reminded that privacy laws and expectations continue, and that videos and other all other course materials are copyright of the instructor, unless otherwise noted. Students must not record, publish, send, post on an internet site, sell, rent, or otherwise distribute this work without the instructor’s express permission.
We ask ASMs to stay in contact with their Association to communicate any concerns or potential Collective Agreement violations as they transition their work online. MUNFA remains ready to defend your rights.
For more information, please see the CAUT Briefing on Privacy and Intellectual Property, or contact the MUNFA office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
