COPYRIGHT*

The copyright law governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted works or materials as well as the circumvention of any technical protection measures for digitally produced works. Under certain conditions specified in the law, individuals and educational institutions, such as the Medical Center, may reproduce portions of works or materials if restricted for private study, scholarship, research or classroom purposes. Liability for any copyright infringement, including protections for digital materials, resides with the user as defined by law.

In keeping with academic freedom and tradition, all faculty own and control instructional materials and scholarly works created at their own initiative with usual UMMC resources. Examples include lecture notes, digital materials, slides, case examples, articles and books, regardless of the form in which the ideas or processes are disseminated.
