Copyright Issues Communicated to Campus Constituents

UC Davis has put in place a multi-pronged copyright awareness campaign for students, faculty and staff. An open letter to all members of the campus community was issued on two separate occasions, on September 23 and May 20 by Provost Hinshaw, Vice Provost Bruno, and Vice Chancellor Nosek (see and click on ?Campus Issues?). A number of articles, Web pages, and other communications have also been developed, especially for students. These include an informational newsletter that was distributed to all Summer Advising students and their parents as well as a special section on the Student Computing Guide Web site and several articles in the California Aggie, the campus student newspaper. Similar efforts are underway for Fall Quarter. In particular, the campus will be issuing an updated version of the open letter to all students, staff, and faculty. Since last Spring, when the open letter was first issued, the number of DMCA notifications the campus has received has remained low (24 for June, July and August combined).
