Frequently Ask Questions

A faculty member uploads personally-owned MP3 music files to a password-protected area on the college's learning management system for students to listen to at their convenience. Does this violate copyright?

Maybe. If the intellectual content contained in the MP3 file was created and owned by the faculty member then likely no. If the recording was made by another individual and contains music composed by others, then providing downloadable copies of the material likely violates copyright.
