It is the policy of the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) that its students, faculty, and staff will abide by federal copyright law and will refrain from using copyright-protected materials in university-related activities unless such use is deemed permissible under the relevant exemptions outlined in the fair use provision of the Copyright Act or the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act, or unless prior appropriate permission or licensing has been obtained.
The legal use of copyrighted materials for instruction purposes requires institutional responsibility and oversight. The following information is provided for direction and guidance on the use of copyright-protected materials in an instructional setting.
All users of copyrighted materials and reproductions, including students, faculty, and staff, are ultimately responsible for satisfying the requirements of copyright law and licensing agreements. These responsibilities include all issues that may arise in the copying and the use of text, images, and digital media. Users are responsible for obtaining all necessary permissions pertaining to the use of such materials.
