UNT Copyright Resources

The purpose of the UNT Copyright Resources site is to provide the UNT community with information about copyright law and to provide a collection of resources that will guide UNT faculty in the use of copyright protected materials in the traditional and online classrooms in accordance with U.S. law and university policy.
