Copyright at the University
Policy
prepared by the Library
2009-2010


    This policy is a tool for those who use copyright-protected works at the University.

    Copyright protects the originality and creativity of works that cannot be used without the permission of the author or copyright holder, who cannot be one and the same, or used only through specific exceptions and limitations.

    Copyright applies to all works: paper, digital, musical, theatrical, artworks, graphic, audiovisual and sound.

    Creating a link to an electronic resource on the Learning Space, or developing a multimedia presentation, distributing texts in support of teaching in the lecture room, photocopying parts of books or journal articles, are only some of the things done in the course of study, documentation and research that have copyright implications. It is important that the members of the Bocconi community is aware of the regulations that apply to what they are doing.

    The policy describes the essential elements of copyright, and aims to raise awareness of its impact on the circulation and use of copyright works. It does not claim to be exhaustive or to be a legal opinion, but to increase awareness of the subject, point out the regulations to be complied with, and protect the University from possible breaches.

    For information on contentious cases, consult the Copyright Contact Officer (Anna Vaglio, e-mail: anna.vaglio@unibocconi.it).
