Acceptable Use of University IT Resources: Students

Follow copyright law

There is no excuse for illegally downloading copyrighted movies, music, television shows, games, and applications. Those who violate the university's policies and the laws of the State of Delaware and the federal government are subject to severe penalties.

File sharing applications can not only unintentionally share copyrighted media, but can also expose personal information. Be safe--the best advice is to delete file sharing applications from your system before coming to campus.

Many songs, TV shows, movies, and other media can be legally obtained through online subscription services. Visit UD's legal options Web site to learn more about where you can legally obtain digital media.
