Dominican University of California is committed to upholding United States copyright law. With much of our student and faculty work being made available online and freely available to the public, education of our faculty and students in regards to the proper use of copyrighted material in the classroom and in their academic work is a priority. Copyright can be complex but faculty and students should have a basic understanding of the issues surrounding copyright so as to avoid legal penalties.
The purpose of this guide is to help faculty and students understand the basics of using copyright, Fair Use, the TEACH Act, the use of photographs and other material in theses, and using alternative materials that are free of the normal copyright restrictions.
