Copyright Compliance

Copyright protection in the United States is granted to any original owner of a “fixed” format. Once an idea, thought or work is expressed in a fixed format, the person who created the fixed form usually gains copyright ownership. Copyright law is rooted in the federal Copyright Act of 1976 and its mandated regulations, which provide economic protection for the creator/owner of tangible and fixed forms of ideas and expression. Copyright law does not protect ideas, mechanisms or processes of producing tangible and fixed forms of ideas. Full compliance with Copyright law is required when utilizing sources, materials, videos, audio clips, images and documents for lectures, websites, blogs, presentations, emails and even social media posts (such as Tweets and Facebook status updates).

Copyright Infringement is the act of violating the copyright owner’s rights. Infringement can occur when a work is used improperly or is reproduced without permission. Anyone involved in infringement can be responsible if a claim is made by the copyright owner. Violation of copyright law allows the copyright owner to file a lawsuit in federal court asking the court to:

  • issue orders (restraining orders and injunctions) to prevent further violations
  • award money damages if appropriate (in fact a holder of a valid copyright is valid, can recover up to $150,000 (and possibly lawyer’s fees) without even having to prove any actual monetary harm); and
  • (in some circumstances)award attorney fees

Any unauthorized use copyrighted material, including without limitation, distribution of copyrighted material through unauthorized peer-to-peer file sharing, in connection with a student’s enrollment in a program of study at Harrison or conducted by the student through the use of Harrison’s equipment of information systems is prohibited and violates the both the Conduct section of the Student Handbook and federal law. Any student who engages in copyright infringement will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.

Students can make copies of written materials and print out electronic documents for their own personal use. For example, a copy of a portion of a copyright-protected work, such as a copy of an article, chapter of a book or page in a newspaper, may be made without permission. However, copying all the assignments from a book recommended for purchase by the instructor, making multiple copies of articles or book chapters for distribution to classmates or copying material from consumable workbooks all require permission. Copies cannot be made for the purpose of distribution to other people or for commercial purposes.

Students may direct copyright compliance questions to their instructors, who in turn may contact Harrison’s Copyright Compliance Coordinator ( for guidance.
