Monash University respects copyright and the rights of copyright holders under the law.
Monash University values innovation in teaching and research and supports the lawful use of copyright material for these purposes.
Copyright compliance is the responsibility of each individual staff member, student or other authorised user. Staff and students may access detailed advice and guidelines about copyright on the University Copyright website.
All staff, students and other authorised users must take reasonable steps to ensure that their activities comply with copyright law and must take all reasonable efforts to uphold the University's own intellectual property rights including copyright.
Staff, students and other authorised users must not knowingly expose the University to the risk of copyright infringement.
Intentional misuse of copyright works (whether third party or University-owned) by staff, including acts which authorise others to infringe copyright, will contravene the University's conditions of employment and the University may commence disciplinary proceedings.
Students must not knowlingly infringe copyright of third parties or the University, or authorise others to infringe copyright; such acts will contravene Monash University (Council) Regulations Part 7, and the University may commence disciplinary proceedings.
Where the risk of copyright infringement is unclear or disputed, students, staff and other authorised users must seek advice in accordance with the Copyright Compliance Procedures (Australia only).
The University will maintain appropriate compliance structures to support its commitment to respect copyright laws.
