Copyright Law

The Dubuque Community School District’s Board of Education prohibits Print Center employees from copying materials not specifically allowed by (1) copyright law, (2) fair-use guidelines, (3) licenses or contractual agreements, or (4) other permission. Please review School Board Policy #6224, Use of Copyrighted Information Resources, for additional copyright information.

The Print Center reserves the right to refuse to accept a work order if processing the order would violate copyright law. Please remember to complete the copyright section of the work-order form. The work-order form will be returned if this section is NOT completed.

The person making the copy request must obtain permission to copy when necessary. The responsibility for compliance with copyright law rests primarily with the user of materials reproduced in the Print Center. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
