Copyright Law

To learn more about Copyright Law, here is a link to an  Online tutorial  developed by BYU.

This tutorial is designed to educate our faculty, staff, and students about copyright law and how it relates to them. BYU’s official Copyright Policy states, “All members of the BYU community—faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and patrons—are expected to respect the rights of copyright owners as established by relevant state and federal laws. Members of the BYU community who disregard the Copyright Policy may be in violation of the Church Educational System Honor Code; may jeopardize their employment; may place themselves at risk for possible legal action; and may incur personal liability” (University Handbook). Simply stated, copyright compliance is a citizenship issue.

Duke University has created a copy book on Copyright Law and Fair Use
