Copyright Reminder

Copyright and intellectual property issues are a part of the fabric of research and scholarly communications, and thus all Stanford faculty, students and staff need a working understanding of copyright law as it impacts their daily lives. The Copyright Reminder, which highlights common campus copyright concerns and outlines fundamental elements of US copyright law, is distributed annually to ensure that the Stanford community remains aware of those issues.

Protection of Stanford course material

Recently, third party websites have posted Stanford course content without permission.  Faculty and TAs are advised to place (c) [copyright symbol] Stanford University 201_ on all course assignments, syllabi, exams and other materials developed for a course.  Students are reminded that the University owns the course content and enrolled students have a license to use the material for class.  Students may not distribute the content to others without the permission of the course instructor.
