Is it legal to record lecturers at a university for your own purpose, instead of writing down notes etc?
Or does it depend on what their T&C's consist of?
Thanks,

~Dylan

I did,
They said they didn't mind, but weren't too sure what the laws are surrounding it.
I guess I'll just have to ask the brass at the university!
thanks,

if your just consuming the lecture then you just ask the lecturer for permission and just don't post the recordings online.

the lecturer owns the copyright and just needs to give you permission which he has..

At Canterbury its pretty well accepted, even encouraged by some lecturers. In some classes there might be half a dozen recording devices (phones, dictaphones) left up on the lecturn by students during the lecture. And I've had cases where the lecturer redistributes an individual's recordings of their lectures if there is demand for it.

That said, more and more lectures are being automatically recorded, even videoed these days.

What university are you at/going to be at?

Awesome

Regardless of the lecturers view, couldn't you argue fair use/fair dealing (of copyright) anyway?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_New_Zealand#Exclusions_and_fair_dealing

Exclusions and fair dealing

The Act allows for certain permitted acts to be exempted from copyright restrictions.

    Fair dealing; for purpose of criticism, review, news reporting, research, private study.
    certain educational purposes
    time shifting of TV programmes for viewing at a later time
    format shifting of music
    back up of computer programmes
    making copies in Braille.

Vic uni was fine with it,  you're prob not the only student doing it ... one time a student played it back by mistake and the lecturer made a joke ........ after hearing her own voice.

What about videoing, which would be a lot more useful for some lectures, espeically those that have slideshows? Technology has moved on a lot since I was at uni, as videing back then would need a hand held cam corder. But these days you can just use your phone, and get full HD quality.

The Livescribe pen is marketed for exactly this and I must say having used mine for the last year it has been invaluable.
