Faculty/Student Request for Permission to use Copyright Material
BackgroundAvondale College of Higher Education holds a number of licenses to cover student and faculty use of copyrighted materials for education, worship, social and outreach activities.
If, however, you wish to use more of a copyright work than is permitted under the Copyright Act, or material which is not covered by licenses and agreements held by Avondale College of Higher Education, then permission from the copyright owner must be sought.
While every effort will be made to complete your request quickly, please bear in mind that it may take time to identify the copyright owner and/or negotiate permission to use. Plan ahead, and give as much time as possible for your request to be processed.
- The creator of a copyright work is not always the copyright owner

- Copyright holders may charge a fee for use
- If the copyright owner cannot be found, you are NOT free to use the material
- If the copyright owner does not respond to the request, you are NOT free to use the material
