The aim of this paper is to expose the existing conflicts between the lack of standardized information about licensing attached to educational resources in virtual learning environments. These licenses are the ones regarding authoring learning objects and contents. Through documentary analyses comprehending a number of environments, platforms and aggregators, its terms of use, and policies, both from Brazilian initiatives and international ones, the major findings of the conflicts were exposed. Furthermore, bills of law, existing codes, international treaties, as well as bibliographical research were explored in this paper. One of the conclusions of the work is that a comprehensive literacy in licensing is needed both for creators of contents and also for the ones who reuse them as a source of learning or teaching resources. It was explored both open licenses, known as creative commons, as well as copyrighted ones.
