I am learning a PHP course from Udemy. Can I upload the whole code in my Github without facing any copyright issues ?

  • What does the Udemy's - or the individual teachers' - TOS say about the license and copyright of the php code? – BlueDogRanch Nov 1 '17 at 13:34
  • Its just a php course , they just teach the material and does say anything related to license ? – Mohit Nov 1 '17 at 13:36
  • Of course there are licenses for the service and teaching materials. – BlueDogRanch Nov 1 '17 at 14:15

If you copy course material to a public repository such as Github, you will be violating Udemy's TOS that says (emphasis mine)

  1. Specific Obligations of Students

As a Student, You represent, warrant and covenant that:

And you will be violating Github's TOS, too:

  1. Content Restrictions
