NACADA members are encouraged to use properly cited quotations within scholarly research. However, the sharing or transferring of recorded materials requires copyright permission from NACADA.
NACADA holds the exclusive copyright for all NACADA publications, including all that appear in electronic (Web, video, CD, audio download, streaming video, etc.) and nonelectronic (print) form. Copyright protects the expression in the work, not the facts, information, or ideas. However, since copyright protects the format, organization, sequence, and style of publications as part of the expression, paraphrasing is only appropriate for limited portions of the original and should credit the source. Close paraphrasing is akin to direct quotation. Thus, permission must be sought from NACADA before using NACADA copyrighted materials.
