Intellectual Property Rights & Copyright
The mission of the Intellectual Property Rights Advisory Board shall be to inform and guide the BSU community about copyright compliance and highlight the importance of intellectual property law in all functions at BSU.
The unauthorized copying of others’ work, while seeming like an easy and immediate solution, frequently violates the rights of the author or publisher of a work. In addition, this practice is in direct opposition to the goals and mission of the college, which strive to teach respect for ideas and products of individuals. It is essential for all members of the college community to understand copyright law.
