Copyright Guide

Please be aware that many of the resources you find online are copyright protected. Although the internet is a different medium than printed text, ownership and intellectual property rights still exist. Check the documents you are viewing for appropriate statements indicating ownership and what the person holding those rights is asserting. Remember, it is your responsibility to respect these rights!

The Copyright Law of the United States (contained in Title 17 of the United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Users are liable for any infringement. The University of Arizona adheres to this statute, relying on educational exemptions provided to libraries and the fair use provisions of the Copyright Law, and obtains the permission of the copyright holder when required.
