Sound

Music and e-learning
Music is comprised by copyright law. Except from a few cases where you only quote a very small part of the work of music, permission should be obtained before using music in e-learning. Permission is obtained at KODA and Gramex.

Music at parties
The rectors at the university colleges have made an agreement with KODA and Gramex about the use of music at parties, concerts and showing of films as well as background music. The institutions must notify KODA no later than 15 days before any arrangements including live music.

Sound recordings of teaching

The teacher owns the copyright of his or her teaching. Recording a class does not conflict with the Copyright Act if it is done solely for your own use, i.e. the recording is not shared with fellow students or published on the Internet.

We recommend that you ask for your teacher’s permission (in writing would be a good idea). Your teacher can refuse recording of the class, and you are obligated to respect that. A consent can subsequently be withdrawn, so you will have to delete your recording.

If a class is recorded, then you are responsible for ensuring that your fellow students cannot be heard. If your fellow students can be heard, then you must ask permission from each of them; otherwise the recording must be deleted.
