UC Copyright Policy

The University of Cincinnati supports the rights of copyright ownership and intellectual property and expects the UC community to respect the laws regulating intellectual property.

The principles of fair use are essential elements of free speech and are central to the role of the library and the university in instruction, scholarship and research. While US law provides exceptions to copyright ownership, it is incumbent on the user to understand how these exceptions are applied and make decisions on whether their use is in accordance with the law.

UC Libraries is committed to provide information to assist in this undertaking. 

More information can be found at UC's Copyright page.
