Information Governance and Compliance


Copyright is one of a group of intellectual property rights. Copyright plays an important role in the work undertaken by everyone at the University. You must consider copyright before re-using any material.

We operate a helpdesk enquiry service which is available to staff, students and researchers. The aim of the service is to provide assistance to users in relation to copyright queries and raise awareness of the legal issues relating to the use of information technology with a particular focus on copyright.

The following pages provide a guide to copyright and the re-use of material. If you need any further help or advice please contact the Information Governance and Compliance team.

We also work with the U UK/Guild HE Copyright Working Group (CWG) nationally to negotiate HE blanket licences on behalf of the sector, amongst other things.  For further background information on the CWG, please see this blog post by Jane Secker, a member of the group. The University of Strathclyde is represented on the CWG by Ralph Weedon.
