University Copyright and Fair Use Policy

University Policy: 01-010 Copyright Fair Use

The mission of Oregon State University (“university”) is best achieved through the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and creative expression. The university recognizes that its faculty and staff engage in this exchange as both creators and users of intellectual property and this university policy demonstrates the university’s commitment to the appropriate use of copyrighted materials. Where uses of copyrighted works would exceed those permitted by fair use and other statutory exceptions, permission to use the copyrighted works must be obtained from the copyright owner.
