Copyright Roles at Baker University

Compliance

Individuals are responsible for complying with the copyright laws. This is a complex area of the law with a number of factors to consider. It is not possible to provide absolute guidelines that work equally well in all circumstances, so it is important for users of copyrighted materials to document their usage in instances where use might be questioned.

Education

The UAC Learning Resources Committee is responsible for providing educational opportunities, updating the copyright website, and reviewing the policy on a regular basis.

Assistance

The director of library services is available to discuss compliance issues and options. This is reference service provided by someone who works to stay familiar with the issues rather than legal advice.

Licensing

The Office of the Vice President for Financial Affairs handles cases requiring the licensing of information and performance rights. Any payments come from the department or office for which the license is required.

DMCA Agent

Under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, the University has designated the vice president for information technology as the agent to receive notification of instances where infringing material resides on University-hosted websites or information repositories.
