Introduction

Why should I care? Copyright is a frustrating, contentious law. But the bottom line is that if you didn't write, record, compose or design it, it isn't yours. So you have to know something about copyright whenever researching, copying, posting, linking, scanning, or reusing anyone else's work.

This guide includes critical information for students about copyright: summaries, policies, links to resources, and more. The goal is to assist you in finding answers to your copyright questions and to lead you to resources that can help you make your own decisions regarding copyright.
