PRINT VIOLATIONS(From U.S Copyright Office. Library of Congress. "Copyright Basics: What Works Are Protected?" http://lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/circs/circ1.html#wwp, June 1999)
- Forgery & Misinterpretation
Just as it is possible for someone to forge a signature on a paper document, one can make it appear as though a different person created a web page. The College views such practices as a violation of this policy statement.
Creating FTP sites that distribute copyrighted information such as music, images, etc. is a serious violation of this policy statement.
The DMCA agent (see ‘Web’ below) or person or office receiving the infringement notification will address the suspected violation. If necessary, the violation will be reported to the appropriate authority for investigation and adjudication as follows:
|For Faculty:||The Dean of the Faculty|
|For Administration & Staff:||The immediate office director and supervisor.|
|For Students:||The Dean of Student Affairs for action or delegation under the Student Handbook to the Academic Integrity Board if the violation is related to a Skidmore course or to the Social Integrity Board if the violation is related to action not connected to a Skidmore course.|
|For Union Personnel:||Human Resources Director.|
|All members of the College:||All members of the College: Any member of the College who believes that improper use of web pages has violated their academic freedom may present their case to the Committee on Academic Freedoms and Rights.|
When the agent to receive statutory notices about infringements under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act receives a report of suspected copyright violation, he/she will "respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing."
The Center for Information Technology Services (IT) will temporarily disable a user's account if it reasonably believes that the user represents a serious on-going threat to copyright violation or a violation of this policy statement.
