Copyright & Intellectual Property

Sharing copyrighted works can be a contentious subject.  The subject of using Peer-to-Peer (P2P) has been widely debated in the news, law-making bodies, and and in our community.  While using P2P technologies to obtain legally available content is accepted and encouraged, we would like to remind our users that Georgia Tech and Georgia Tech users are obligated to follow and obey the laws surrounding the use and distribution of copyrighted works.  Downloading or distributing copyrighted works without permission from the copyright owner is against the law and a violation of the Georgia Tech Computer & Network Usage and Security Policy.

When Cyber Security receives a copyright infringement complaint, the Copyright Infringement Complaint Response Procedures outlines our response.
