Additional Resources for Students

How does copyright affect you as a student? In a few ways.

As a content creator, papers you write or videos you create for class are protected by copyright. Did you know that UAB's Copyright Policy applies to you even as a student?

As a content consumer, your use of copyrighted materials in class assignments (text excerpts, photos, sound or video clips, etc.) must comply with copyright law. Just because your use may be for an educational purpose does not necessarily mean you may use it without permission.

Creative Commons
