UC Copyright and Fair Use Website

Copyright and fair use are of special concern in higher education and research.

As both creators and users of copyrighted and public domain materials, members of the UC academic community should understand and responsibly exercise the rights accorded them under U.S. copyright law.

The University of California Copyright and Fair Use website provides guidance on how to protect your own copyrights and how to respect the copyrights of others.

UCI Libraries recommends starting your exploration of copyright there.
