In this global information age, protection of intellectual property rights is enforceable whether the material is on the Internet or not. If you provide materials by means of college equipment or network connections, the college, as your service provider, may have obligations to take down your materials if it receives a claim of infringement. The college may exercise additional disciplinary measures for repeated or flagrant misuse.
College faculty, staff and students have identified advice on these matters from:
- Copyright basics at the US Copyright office
- Evergreen's patents and copyrights policy
- Collection of resources on fair use and copyright at Evergreen's Library
- Trademark and Other Intellectual Property Resource Guide
