A major challenge for colleges that want to post lecture
materials on the Web involves making sure they have permission to
use the copyrighted images from journals and other sources that
professors have put in their slides. Today the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology announced that it has reached a deal with
Elsevier, one of the largest journal publishers, to allow a
limited amount of material from its journals to be used in MIT's
OpenCourseWare project.

The agreement allows the project to use up to three illustrations per journal
article, and up to 100 words of text.
