The 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) outlines the actions that institutions can take to reduce copyright infringement liability. If faculty or staff engage in copyright infringement, the University can be protected against liability by taking certain actions outlined on Washburn's Digital Millennium Copyright Act site.
By providing this copyright site for faculty and staff, Washburn University hopes to inform faculty and staff of their rights and responsibilities under copyright law. Short "quizzes" will present common scenarios. Each section also offers rules of thumb, links to other internal and external copyright resources, and information about obtaining copyright clearance.
If you have any comments or suggestions for this site, please e-mail the Copyright Committee.
Learn more about specific areas of copyright that pertain to you. Quizzes are provided to test your knowledge.
