Warning notices & labels

There is a prescribed electronic warning notice which must be used for material copied and communicated under the Statutory Licence (the Copyright Agency and Screenrights agreements).

The electronic warning notice MUST be displayed on, or immediately before, each electronic copy and communication made under the Licence. The notice must be located in such a way that the student using the material will see it.

The most common requirement for the notice is where staff are preparing teaching materials for Blackboard which contain third party copyright material, such as presentation slides and handouts. If making copies of third party copyright material such as book chapters and journal articles, use Reading Lists – Reading Lists staff will manage the notice requirements on your behalf.

Do not use the notice for material copied outside of the Statutory Licence. The Licence is only required for electronic usage, so is not required when giving hard copy handouts.

Please refer to the following examples of where to place the notice in presentation slides and documents.

Curtin branded Faculty templates with electronic warning notices are located in Teaching Resources.
