ITS Connect: February 2020
ITS reminds Pace Community members to engage in best practices when engaging in P2P sharing, copyright, and file sharing. Plus, get ahead of the pack with LinkedIn Learning!
Peer to Peer, Copyright, and Illegal File Notice
It is important for members of the Pace Community to be aware of the laws and policies concerning the use of copyrighted material, especially digital material—music, movies, software, etc. As part of our commitment to raise awareness on these and other issues concerning your online safety, and as required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), we want to remind you of a few things.
All users of Pace University’s Information Technology equipment and services, including University provided network and internet access, are required to abide by, and comply with, all state and federal laws governing copyrights and trademarks, as well as other applicable state and federal laws, and applicable University polices.
The use of copyrighted material may require the permission of the copyright owner. The absence of a copyright notice or symbol on a work does not denote a lack of copyright. Copyrighted works can include, but are not limited to text, graphics, software, video games, movies, music, and photographs. We would like to remind you that Pace University’s Copyright, Peer to Peer (P2P), and Illegal File Sharing Policy expressly forbids the sharing or serving of copyrighted material without the proper consent of the author.
Many organizations monitor copyright infringements on the internet. If the University is notified or independently learns that you have infringed on a copyright while using the University’s network, then you may be subject to a range of penalties. Such penalties include restriction or loss of University network access, disciplinary action through the Dean for Students Office, and possibly civil and criminal penalties as detailed in the University’s policy.
