If you have any questions about what you are permitted to do with NDLRN content, or would like to seek permission to use copyright material in a way that may not be covered under the content’s associated ‘Conditions of use’ or ‘Rights description’, please contact Education Services Australia’s Licensing and copyright unit via

Moral rights

Content made available by NDLRN often includes, or is made up wholly of, third-party materials. Third-party materials can be recognised by the presence of an acknowledgments statement or contributor metadata which identifies the copyright owner(s) and creator(s) of such materials.

An individual creator of material (whether or not they own copyright) has rights called ‘moral rights’ which are the rights to:

  • be attributed as the creator of their work;
  • take action if their work is falsely attributed as being someone else’s work or is altered by someone else but attributed as if it were unaltered; and
  • take action if their work is distorted or treated in a way that is prejudicial to their honour or reputation.

In accordance with the ‘Conditions of use’ or ‘Rights description’ which accompanies NDLRN content, you agree not to infringe the moral rights of the creator of the material when you use the content.
