What is Copyright?

Copyright symbol

Copyright, the right of the copyright holder to control the duplication, performance, and distribution of a work, applies to almost all creative and intellectual works. Copyright covers printed works such as books and journals, and their electronic equivalents. Sound recordings, motion pictures, photographs, works of art, computer programs, websites, and music are also covered by copyright.

Policy 01:012 sets forth the University of Montevallo's policy regarding copyright compliance.

The following pages provide information about copyright as it applies in an academic setting.

If you have questions about copyright, please contact Kathy Lowe, University Copyright Officer, 205-665-6100.

ARL's Code of Best Practices in Fair Use

In 2012, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) released a document entitled, "Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries."  The report seeks to outline principles for fair use, and it attempts to tie legal definitions of fair use to the pedagogical defensibility of a digitially-circulated text.
