The attribution information is formatted for digital and printed use. About The Licenses. Our public copyright licenses incorporate a unique and innovative “three-layer” design.

About The Licenses

Each license begins as a traditional legal tool, in the kind of language and text formats that most lawyers know and love. We call this the Legal Code layer of each license.

Copyright – what CAN we do? In September 2011, MELTA held a workshop on “Copyright Law for Teachers”, in which a copyright law expert was invited to advise its members on the legal issues involved in using various teaching materials in the classroom.

Copyright – what CAN we do?

The feedback from this workshop was: “Okay, now we know what we CAN’T do, please can we have a workshop to let us know what we CAN do!” This workshop was organised in response to that feedback. The workshop addressed some of the issues that English teachers face when using published materials (e.g. coursebooks, audio CDs, text, videos and images from the internet, etc.). A panel of selected speakers, which included authors, publishers and materials developers, presented their perspectives (either in person in Munich or online) and answered questions about copyright fielded by the online and in-room audiences.
