Members of University staff should note that their Conditions of Service require them to abide by the law of copyright. In particular:
The University … expects that reproduction of copyright material will be a normal part of a member’s activities. To this end, members are required to reproduce material in a proper manner, whether by means of legislative permissions, by licence or by direct permission from rights holders.
(Conditions of Service for Academic and related staff, section 22; Research staff grade 5, section 18; Technical staff, section 21.)
The Conditions of Service also specify who owns the copyright in works made by members of University staff while doing their jobs.
