I would like to ask for your advice regarding the ownership rights.
I have created my course based on already existing material (scientific articles, professional blogs and so on). My course unites already existing and relevant content and of course I have referenced all the resources that I am using in my course. Would it be sufficient or how else should I make sure that I am not violating ownership rights?
Could you explain what exactly is meant by the following verification statement:
"I am the original owner of all of the content used in my course(s) and, if applicable, have secured all the necessary rights to use content owned by another individual".
Thank you very much for your time!
The term original content means content in your own words, using your own style of presentation (slides etc.), your own copyright images, graphics etc.
If you have referenced some resources, that's ok. It's called market research, not an infringement of copyright of the external sources.
Hi @Mariam698 if you have any doubt or concern about the legality of the content in your course, I would suggest you consult with an attorney.
It's important to us that instructors posting courses on Udemy respect applicable laws and the intellectual property of others. When instructors post courses on our marketplace, they make the promise that they have the necessary authorization or rights to use all the content contained in their courses.
