Many common campus activities involve copyright, and so it is critical that all Stanford faculty, students and staff have a working understanding of copyright law as it impacts their daily lives. The Stanford University Libraries provide this Copyright Reminder to ensure that all members of the Stanford community have access to that critical information. The Copyright Reminder highlights common campus copyright concerns, and outlines the fundamental elements of US copyright law that apply in those situations.
This copyright reminder is distributed annually, but is always available on the libraries’ website. We strongly encourage you to read through this document each year, to refresh your memory, and perhaps notice something that you missed in past years.

Copyright concerns of the past year include:
- Online learning continues to expand
- Stanford Profiles are rolled out broadly
- Copyright and dissertations
Members of the Stanford community who need further copyright information should feel free to contact Lauren Schoenthaler in the General Counsel’s office at email@example.com.
