Downloading copyright protected content (images, music, etc) using a DET ICT system

A school technician downloads a film to watch at home later that evening. The technician burns the film to a DVD-R and deletes the files from the laptop. (Via a peer-to-peer file sharing program on a school owned laptop)

  • In terms of your professional practice consider… Using peer-to-peer file sharing programs (e.g. Frostwire) to download copyright protected materials is illegal. Users can be identified.
  • DET Recommends: DET employees in schools do not download copyright protected content (images, music, etc) using a DET ICT system.
