Cornell Policies

Cornell University, as both a major producer and a major consumer of intellectual property, seeks to promote respect for intellectual property throughout the University community. Cornell expects compliance with copyright laws of all members of that community.

Copyright infringement can constitute a violation of several University policies including: the Campus Code of Conduct, the Code of Academic Integrity, and the Policy on Responsible Use of Electronic Communications. Copyright ownership is addressed in the University's Copyright Policy.

The Office of University Counsel is available to answer any questions you may have regarding the following policies and guidance memoranda.
