Abstract

The spread of the COVID-19 virus forced educational institutions to transition to online education. This contribution analyzes, through the lens of copyright law, the terms and conditions of some selected online services used to deliver remote teaching. The study highlights the most problematic terms and their detrimental effects on remote teaching by focusing on copyright ownership, liability, and content moderation.

Keywords: Emergency Remote Teaching, copyright, COVID-19, exceptions & limitations, content moderation, platform liability
