RIAA and MPAA Complaint Policy

Purpose:

To outline the University's response to complaints by RIAA, MPAA (or similar organizations) of potential copyright violations.

 

Statement:

The University will support the rights of copyright owners of intellectual or creative property.

 

Description:

  • Formal complaints originating from documented copyright holders (or their legal agents) will be investigated by the University; such requests may be forwarded to the University's legal counsel for approval, depending upon the nature of the specific complaint.
  • All WSU users are expected to adhere to the University's Network Acceptable Use Policy and Copyright and Protected Content Policy.
  • At minimum, the University will require that users identified in a formal complaint remove any copyrighted material(s), in violation, from personal and University-owned devices if the complaint is confirmed.
  • Failure to adhere to University policies regarding network acceptable use and the protection of copyrighted materials may result in the suspension of WSU network and email accounts.
