Do I have the right to reuse? The institutional acculturation process of open practices into producing, sharing and repurposing OER

ABSTRACT
In this presentation we focus on the way open practices are influenced by IPR and copyright issues, drawing on experiences of the Open University's own OER initiative (OpenLearn) and those of our collaborators worldwide, focusing on examples from our work at OLnet. While copyright is generally considered in legal terms, our aim is to explore it from an educational perspective; both in how these issues influence the provider of resources, and their impact on the user with whom the content is being shared.
