Welcome to the Cornell University Copyright Information Center.

The goal of the Copyright Information Center is to provide Cornell faculty, staff, and students with Cornell-specific and general information about copyright. The Website serves as an information clearinghouse and contains Cornell policies, general information, reference materials, and information on the University's copyright awareness and education programs. You can also find information about the copyright clearance and consultancy services to assist you with your copyright-related questions.

We are interested in hearing your comments. Please send us your feedback and suggestions to support the further development of the Center.
