Policy Statement

Plagiarism and copyright infringement is not acceptable in any of Learnaboutgmp’s online eLearning courses of printed books.

The primary responsibility of avoiding both plagiarism and copyright infringement rests with the individual producing the original material. For books this is the author, and for eLearning courses this is the instructor for the audio narrative and typically the instructional developer for the visual elements. However, if the instructor provides visual elements for a course then the responsibility for avoiding plagiarism and copyright infringement rests with the instructor. Conversely, if the instructional developer contributes to the narrative then the responsibility for avoiding plagiarism and copyright infringement rests with the instructional developer for their contribution.

Any complaint of plagiarism or copyright infringement will be handled according to the company’s procedure for handling complaints.

If any claim of plagiarism or copyright infringement is substantiated, either

a. Appropriate acknowledgement will be provided, or
b. Permission to use will be obtained, or
c. The unacceptable material replaced with acceptable material
