The website I need to use requires students to register for an account to access materials/tools/software that is being used in the industry. Can I still use it? Last Updated: Nov 29, 2022 Views: 8
Maybe. The account registration disqualifier applies to materials that are not unique (articles, blogs, etc.) and can be found on other sites without requiring students to disclose personal information to access. If the requested website contains software or tools that are being used in the industry (for example, text mining software), and there are no alternatives, an exception may be made for use, providing copyright clearance is approved.
