Copyrightable Materials at CSU

Cleveland State University expects all members of the university community to respect the U.S. Copyright Law of 1976, Title 17 of the United States Code. The principles of copyright law that apply to electronic course content are the same as those that apply to printed course material, regardless of whether the electronic content is textual or audio-visual, or where it is stored (Course Reserves, Blackboard, iTunesU, for example). If permission would be required for a print use, it shall be required for an analogous electronic use.

See CSU's full policy on copyrightable materials.
