The teacher’s lectures are the result of his many years of knowledge and the fruit of his labor, and they serve as an instrument to improve the level of his students to the highest levels. However, some students may record the lecture without the teacher’s knowledge and load it onto their own devices, making the teacher feel like his efforts are in vain. It is necessary to pause lawfully and demonstrate the legitimacy of such an act in order to build the argument against anyone who claims ignorance or doubts the legality of this behavior. The teacher has a moral right to his lectures, which forbids anybody from utilizing them until he decides they are appropriate for publication and dissemination, as well as a material right to them because lectures are considered creative works and are protected by copyright. Aside from the issue about who owns the lectures between the teacher and the university, a student may not record the lectures without the permission of the teacher or university. The laws’ restrictions and exceptions will not assist the student in determining the legality of his or her behavior because all restrictions are governed by criteria that do not apply in the student’s instance and do not provide legal protection. Even if a student manages to discuss about the legality of his work while adhering to the rules and exceptions, an attack on private life would be viewed as an attack on a teacher’s right.
