In this study, Panda and Santosh (2017) survey 69 faculty members of the Indira Gandhi National Open University of India about their attitudes towards openness. 92% of faculty members reported that "it is important to share knowledge and teaching materials among faculty", but only 50% agreed with the statement, "I am willing to make the resources I develop available as OER for anyone to use for any purpose without seeking my permission" (p. 101). The authors also conclude that there is a need to better train faculty in copyright and IPR, as 99% of respondents expressed concern about IPR and copyright permissions in reusing content.
