Copyright Guidelines: Copyright Home

 

Welcome to the Durham Tech Library's Guide to Copyright

A Resource for Faculty & Staff

 

Here you can find information to help you understand copyright, fair use, and the public domain. Please be aware, however, that we are librarians. Not lawyers. And any liability will fall on you, the individual, if you are deemed to have violated copyright. 

Let's get started!

Tips to Keep in Mind:

  • Assume most content is protected by copyright
  • "Educational Use" "Fair Use" 
  • Attribution alone may not be enough
  • Password-protection alone may not be enough
  • Students hold copyright to their works
