Copyright Clearance

Reproduction of copyrighted material without prior permission of the copyright owner is illegal and an issue of concern for the academic community:

  • Unauthorized copying can violate the rights of the author and/or publisher of the copyrighted work
  • Unauthorized copying is contrary to the academic mission of teaching respect for ideas and the intellectual property that expresses those ideas

When you send published and copyrighted materials to be reproduced, we recommend submitting written approval from the holder of the copyright.
