Copyright at the Seminary

The Seminary and Copyright

It is the intent of Union Presbyterian Seminary (“UPSem” or “the Seminary”) that all members of the Seminary community adhere to the provisions of the United States Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code, Sect. 101, et seq.). The following policy statements and guidelines constitute a manual for anyone at the Seminary who wishes to use, reproduce, alter, or perform works that are protected by copyright. Since copyright protection applies to a variety of creative works -- printed materials, sound recordings, video recordings, visual artworks, computer software, and others -- the policy has been constructed to address issues related to particular types of media.
Members of the Seminary community who willfully disregard the copyright policy do so at their own risk and assume all liability. All questions concerning copyright and acceptable use of materials should be directed to the Director of the Library’s Instructional Resource Center.
