Copyright Material Violations (DMCA)

Based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), the campus must respond when the recording, motion picture or software industry determine that a campus computer has illegally downloaded and stored copyrighted material.  If the offending computer can be linked to an individual member of the college, IT Shared Service or your local IT support group are required to turn over the identity of the offending individual to the campus DMCA violation management group without notifying the individual.  This is the least favorite part of our job and the best way to avoid the problem is not to download or store copyrighted material on campus owned equipment.  For more information, go here.
