Effective September 2004
It has come to my attention that the Copyright forms (cherry sheets) are not being filled out properly and in accordance with University of Cincinnati policies. And also that the staff in the Mail/Copyroom is being given difficulty about this issue.
We are required by the University of Cincinnati, the State of Ohio and the Federal Government to fill out these forms in the proper manner.
The form MUST be signed by the FACULTY MEMBER requiring the copyrighted information. Please be very clear on this issue. It is a question of liability.
The staff in the Mailroom CANNOT and WILL NOT accept Graduate Assistant, Teaching Assistant or Secretarial signatures.
I have attached a copy of the letter which was circulated a few years ago regarding the copyright infringement laws.
Thank you for your adherence to this policy, it is for the protection of us all.
