University Counsel Copyright Statement for Faculty

University Employees (faculty members and staff) are responsible for understanding and adhering to copyright law in creating works, including scholarly and artistic works to which they hold the copyright individually under the Regent Policy on Intellectual Property that is Educational Material.  University employees who violate copyright law may be personally liable for such violations.  The University generally will not provide a defense against copyright infringement litigation if the claim involves a work created outside of the employee's specifically assigned job duties.  In addition, University employees who willfully violate copyright law may be subject to disciplinary action for violation of campus or departmental policies.
