Program Description

Student works pose an interesting copyright challenge for IR managers due to the student's lack of understanding of differences between regular academic assignments/projects and works made available via the IR. Graduate students who have not yet published, and undergraduate students, often apply the same copyright rules they use on class assignments to works destined for the IR. Conversations between faculty and the IR manager can help avoid the student misapplication of fair use / fair dealing and infringements and provide suitable licenses. IR manager must also consider risk management and ensure that the institution respects the copyright of the student.
