Copyright at Kent

Information Services have just published copyright guidelines and a copyright policy to help staff, students and partners understand and resolve copyright issues.

The Guidelines include a clear explanation of UK copyright law and practical advice for those using or creating text, images, music, software, sound and video recordings as well as other types of educational and research resources.

The University’s Copyright and Licensing Compliance Officer, Chris Morrison, has created the guidelines in conjunction with a consultative group drawn from across the University.

Chris, who also sits on the UUK / Guild HE Copyright Working Group, is available for further copyright advice at or on 01227 823857 and is planning a programme of activities over the coming months to raise awareness of copyright issues throughout the University.
