AUAS Library


The basics

Whether you are a student, lecturer or researcher at the AUAS, you will have to deal with Copyright no matter what. Just taking an image from Google for your presentation is not allowed. Nor are you allowed to copy texts produced in ChatGPT. Want to use images, sound fragments or texts produced by others? Then check our information on copyright first. Do you develop work yourself? Then you are a 'creator'. Find out what your rights and obligations are.

The AUAS Library follows the information on the national website of Network Copyright Information Points . On this basis, we have set out the most important information for students, lecturers and researchers. Click on the buttons below for a link to information on this Library website that is relevant to you.

Copyright is the right of the creator of a work to determine how, where and when the work is made public and copied. An author can transfer copyright in whole or in part, for example to a publisher.

Copyrights are governed by the Copyright Act, and are part of the intellectual property law. The HvA has policies on these rights, which you will find in the Regulations on Intellectual Property and Knowledge Valorisation and the Guideline on Intellectual Property between student and institution .

Permission for use

The Copyright Act allows parts of a work to be used without needing permission from the copyright holder, provided certain rules are observed. For education, the rules for citing and for short extracts are important. Use of a work outside these rules always requires prior permission from the creator. The creator can prohibit the use or allow it (for a fee).

Tip: Record permission obtained from the copyright holder in writing and keep it in a safe place. This may be requested during periodic copyright audits.
