This intent of this guide is to provide you with a basic overview of Copyright Law for an Academic Environment and answer these commonly asked questions:
- Am I allowed to use this?
- Where can I find resources?
- How do I make these resources available to my students?
- What do I need to do to make sure my work is protected under Copyright?
