A quick overview of copyright law and fair use that may be helpful for faculty and students.

For Students


ACU's policies include an Intellectual Property policy for faculty, student employees, and students who are working with faculty on academic projects, an Academic Integrity policy, and a Responsible Use of Information and Technology Resources policy. The TEACH act, an extension of the copyright law, is useful for faculty teaching online courses. See the TEACH Act tab for more information about the TEACH Act in the context of online courses, including on campus use of Canvas.
