Sites like Course Hero limit the number of documents you can view without creating an account, making it challenging for instructors to search for and identify their own course materials and file a takedown request. The Copyright Information Center at Cornell University Library recommends using Google's alert feature to create an automatic notification when select course materials appear on sites indexed by Google's search engine.
Remember, if you find course materials that YOU created on third-party websites that do not have your permission, you have the right to request that they are taken down.
