Copyright: What is it and why is important?
This guide is intended to serve as an introduction for copyright for faculty and students primarily; understanding copyright and what it means for you is more important than ever as new technologies for distributing and using information emerge.

Anyone who uses information should understand some copyright basics and how it impacts his or her academic work. A common pitfall is to assume that because we are part of a university, the information we make use of falls under fair use or education exemptions. It's important to recognize that this is not the case.
