Cleveland State University expects all members of the university community to respect the U.S. Copyright Law of 1976, Title 17 of the United States Code. The principles of copyright law that apply to electronic course content are the same as those that apply to printed course material, regardless of whether the electronic content is textual or audio-visual, or where it is stored (e-reserves, Blackboard, iTunesU, for example). If permission would be required for a print use, it shall be required for an analogous electronic use.

The Center for eLearning will accommodate these requests only with permission from the faculty member who created the original content or the department chair. Requests must be submitted by the Instructor of Record in CampusNet or the Department Chair.
