How can I avoid infringing copyright?
Read and adhere to Memorial's Copyright Policy and these FAQs. Also, ask questions at the Copyright Office, obtain clearances before making copies where you are not the owner of the copyright, or that do not that do not qualify as open access, fair dealing or under the educational exemptions found in the Copyright Act.
Since the right to make copies is granted exclusively to the copyright holder in the Copyright Act, permission to copy is necessary except when copies are made in accordance with fair dealing or the educational exemptions found in the Copyright Act. That permission may come in several forms, including licensing through a collective rights organization, licensing directly with the copyright holder, specific written permission from the copyright holder, and general permissions established through publication under one of the forms of the Creative Commons licence or its equivalents. Further, websites often grant their own permissions. To obtain permissions or ask questions contact the Copyright Office.
It is your responsibility to avoid infringement under the Copyright Act. Memorial University is not responsible for any acts that infringe copyright.
