ABSTRACT
Distributed computing teaching environments (and e-science education in general) require a supportive policy framework that encourages cooperation and sharing. If teachers can share educational content rather than creating their own, they increase the number of quality resources available to them. However, in sharing these resources, IPR issues such as copyright ownership and licensing must be considered.
