To include book chapters, articles or any other copyright-protected material within class notes,
course packs or online, you will need copyright clearance. Here are some options to consider:
Option 1: If we do have access to the online eBook or article, then it is best to provide the link in
the relevant Learning Management System (LMS) subject for students to access the online material directly.
No copyright clearance is needed for this option.
Option 2: If the above is not possible:
CPUT does not have a blanket copyright licence. When a lecturer places the actual file (book/chapter/article)
on the LMS subject, they need to apply for copyright clearance. A fee based on the number of students in the group and
agreements with the publishers will have to be paid.
To apply for copyright clearance in the Western Cape we work through CHEC via
the Publishing Liaison Office (PLO): The CHEC website
CPUT has a central budget for copyright clearance administered by the office of the DVC: Teaching & Learning.

Lecturers need to complete an online request. If you need any assistance
