Copyright law can be complex and confusing, and wherever possible we provide clarification on the issues most relevant to scholars, researchers, staff, and students. Specifically we can provide guidance, information and instruction on copyright, fair use and related issues. This site strives to offer you clear and straightforward information, but it is not comprehensive. Please see our Resources links or contact us for additional information.
This site does not address issues concerning patents and inventions. See the Office of Technology and Economic Development for assistance.
