I have contacted the author of the book that I am basing my course on. He has stated that he has no problem with my udemy course as long as it is free. With the new free course guidlines this is not possible, because it will be more than 2 hours. If it is not free he said we should set up a royalty arrangement. I was hoping that there was some way that udemy could do that automatically with every purchase of the course. Is this possible?
