Reviewed by the Staff Organization and approved by the Faculty Council at one of its last meetings of the 2000-2001 academic year, this policy was developed in accordance with the UNC Board of Governors’ comprehensive new policy on copyrights. It establishes the Faculty Copyright Education and Policy Committee and a copyright dispute resolution mechanism. In addition the Policy provides guidance on copyright infringement and fair use. Finally, it establishes parameters for ownership of various types of copyrightable works by faculty, staff, and students. This policy is subject to modification as the result of further discussion with the Faculty during next year.Additionally, the Provost will call for a review of the policy after two years of operation under its terms.
