    Hi, I want to public some of courses bought on Lynda.com and I need to know how is it with copyright (we can say i have course completely written in text - mean no video including or sounds. And I want to give it for free download on my personal website). Is the autor still owner of the content from course, or is it me, who owns that stuff? I bought these courses.

    If it is not mine, where is the possibility to public that stuff?
    May I write to author of the course and ask him for the rights?


    Cheers

    you can not do that
    and you did not buy their full course rights just the license to use it personally
    their license does not allow you to redistribute or sell their material
    only personal use

    You don't have the rights. You are not supposed to publish it. However, you can write something up with your own words based on the course and publish it on your site. No biggie. Good luck!
