Using Materials

In the university setting we all use copyrighted materials in a number of different ways for various purposes. We use material for research and teaching, but also for entertainment and social purposes. In some cases, those uses may be covered by specific exceptions in the law. Important exceptions in the university setting include fair use and exceptions for performance and display of a work in online courses and face-to-face teaching.

The links below provide additional information on some issues that may come up when using copyrighted works in your school or personal life.
