Copyrighted materials may only be used or duplicate when the use or duplication constitutes a "fair-use" of materials as defined by law or with prior permission of the copyright holder by letter, license, email or by telephone.

Employees or students who willfully disregard the district's copyright position do so at their own risk and assume all liability.
