Copyright Compliance

Please be advised that SFU Policy R30.04 Copyright Compliance and Administration describes how the university manages its rights and obligations under Canada’s copyright law when copyright protected works in any media are used for a bona fide university teaching, learning, research and administrative purpose. The policy specifies what support and service the university will provide and the persons with responsibilities under the policy including students.

It is important that you abide by the requirements of Canada’s Copyright Act and SFU’s policy when making or distributing copies of copyright materials. Failure to do so could lead to a claim of copyright infringement and might result in serious consequences for the university and you.

Please familiarize yourself with this policy and note your rights and responsibilities under it. You can view the policy and related information and resources on the university library's copyright website at
