Copyright law states that the owner of any tangible creative work has the sole right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display, transmit, or transform that work. 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 American International College, which strive to teach respect for ideas and products of individuals. Use this guide to learn more about protecting your rights as the creator of content and of using copyright-protected materials in your coursework and teaching.
