Copyright Information: Students

Why should I care about copyright at MRU?

  1. It is good scholarly practice.  Individuals are responsible for the intellectual and ethical integrity of their work.
  2. MRU's Use of Copyright Materials Policy (POL #1610) applies to you!  Basically that means you have to comply with the Copyright Act, RSC 1985, c C-42.
  3. Employers expect you to be aware of copyright (so why not learn it now?).
  4. Copyright doesn't just protect other people's work - it protects yours, too!
