What are the rules about making handouts for other students in my class?

You are permitted to make copies of your own work to distribute or share with other students in your class. If you want to make a handout for the rest of your class that includes material that you did not create, you may need permission from the copyright holder to do so. However, if your instructor asked you to make a presentation to or lead a discussion in your class for an educational or training purpose, you do not need copyright permission for material used in a handout or for display in the classroom so long as you only distribute your handout to other students in your class or present the material in the classroom. Please review SFU Policy R30.04 Copyright Compliance and Administration and the Application of Fair Dealing under Policy R30.04 for more information.
