What is CopyrightCheck?

CopyrightCheck provides an overview of learning materials that lecturers and course coordinators share with students within the digital learning environment (LMS). The tool helps gain insight into how much and in what way copyright-protected and open access learning materials are used within the educational institution. This makes it easy for institutions and publishers (represented by the UvO Foundation) to (re)use copyright-protected learning materials.
