Warning Concerning Copyright and DMCA Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code, 1976) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. The Digital Millenium Copy right Act (DMCA) of 1998 is designed to protect copyright holders from online theft. Copying, distributing, downloading, and uploading information on the Internet may infringe on the rights of the copyright owner. Even an innocent, unintentional infringement violates the law.
Every audio, visual or written work has copyright protection unless that protection has expired or the creator places it in the public domain. The work does not have to have a copyright notice or a copyright symbol to be protected by copyright. If you cannot determine whether or not a work is copyrighted assume that it is copyrighted.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, educational institutions are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user uses a photocopy or a reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
It is the user’s responsibility to determine whether information is copyrighted, whether it meets the criteria for “fair use”, and to seek permission from the copyright holder for its use as necessary.
