Copyright Information for Employees

nextWelcome to the Office of Legal Advisor copyright guidance web page. This page provides general copyright information for all Madison College staff, administrative, marketing and instructional faculty. The purpose of this web page is to provide user-friendly copyright guidance for employee compliance. Madison College employees encounter copyright issues in their daily lives, such as: 

  • Instructors show movies in the classroom, make copies of academic articles, create coursepacks, and post copyright-protected materials in Blackboard
  • Marketing staff create brochures, monitor social media sites, and engage in various marketing activities promoting the College
  • Administrative staff develop web pages and are now working on social media sites 

All staff and faculty are expected to know Copyright Basics as set forth on this web page. After reviewing Copyright Basics, staff members are encouraged to take the quiz for their knowledge.
