Copyright for researchers, students and staff

Carleton and its faculty, staff and students are both creators and consumers of intellectual property. As creators, we rely on the protections offered by intellectual property laws to ensure that our work product is protected from improper use. As consumers, we are legally (and morally) obligated to respect the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect others to respect ours.

One intellectual property right that is very important to Carleton faculty, staff and students is copyright. Infringing copyright is a serious matter and Carleton requires each of its faculty, staff and students to comply with copyright law.
