Everyone who uses iTunes U needs to understand copyright regulations and how they apply to uploaded content.

Understanding Copyright

You are encouraged to review the UB policy on copyright and the UB Libraries Copyright Information Resources page. iTunes U content is stored on a server at Apple. Therefore, you should also review Apple's iTunes U Copyright Overview (PDF) and Apple's Copyright Claim Policy.

Is there anything to stop someone from sharing content with others once it is downloaded to their iTunes?

No. There is no Digital Rights Management (DRM), which is electronic protection that limits usage of digital media, in place for content placed on iTunes U.

Does Apple own the content uploaded to iTunes U?
