The George Washington University and a small win for intellectual property

Earlier this week, I received the following email from XanEdu on behalf of The George Washington University:
XanEdu is seeking permission on behalf of [xxx] at George Washington University to include the following material in a digital CoursePack for approximately 12 students enrolled in PSSL 6246 during the Summer 2013 semester:
Title: Shodan for Presentation Testers
Author: Schearer, Michael
Page Range: 1-79
Total Pages: 79
Publisher: (author) Schearer, Michael 
If permission is granted, XanEdu will post the material on a password-protected web site. Only the instructor and students registered for this course will have access. The material will be removed at the end of the semester.   
You may grant permission by emailing or faxing this request with approval information to my attention.  Should a royalty fee apply, please include that with your email or fax.   
Thank you for your consideration. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information.
As with most of my materials, I released this presentation under the Creative Commons License: Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0).

GWU gets +1 for respecting intellectual property!
