RE:    COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT


The UF Information Technology Security Team wants to raise your awareness
about copyright violations. 

Sharing copyrighted material, including music, movies, software and some
intellectual property, without authorization is illegal. 

It is a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998 and
other state and federal laws. 

UF policies support legislation by prohibiting copyright violations. 

In addition to legal penalties, faculty, staff and students who violate
copyright law may face UF disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

With your help, we hope to prevent copyright violations at UF.
