Doing some research? Brush up on your Copyright knowledge!

Public domain, fair use, academic exemption, DMCA, the TEACH act—there’s a lot to know about copyright law in the United States! As you begin putting your research together into a formal paper, it’s good to refresh yourself on this body of copyright law.

Roger Weaver,  the Scholarly Communications Librarian at Missouri S&T, has prepared a fantastic resource on copyright for all scholars here at S&T. This purpose of this guide is to provide our faculty, students, staff and others in our community an understanding of copyright law and it’s proper application in an academic environment. A better understanding and application of copyright law both avoids potential legal issues and makes us all better stewards of the intellectual property of others.
