Enabling staff and student copyright compliance

Are you aware of your responsibilities as a Monash student or staff member when using and sharing material which somebody else owns the copyright to? 

The first thing to do is to know the policy and procedures for compliance.

Following an extensive review and consultation process beginning in early 2014, the revised versions of the University Copyright Compliance Policy and Procedures have received final approval from the University's Academic Board.

The review process included broad University input and consultation. The range of feedback provided undoubtedly resulted in improved wording and clarity of the Policy and Procedures.

A statement in the Procedures has been added regarding the measures the University takes to support staff compliance with the Part VB copyright licence provisions. This statement relates to staff use of the University's online reading list service for provision of Part VB material for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching units. This change aligns with an existing provision in the Staff IT Use policy on services provided for staff to assist with copyright compliance. It also aligns with the policy or procedure statements of a number of other Australian universities.

Staff and students may access detailed advice and guidelines about copyright on the University Copyright website.
