UW compliance with the DMCA

The University of Washington is committed to ensuring that copyrights in creative works are respected and used appropriately by UW faculty, students, staff and visitors. Our policies require those using our computers or networks to respect U.S. and international copyright laws and failure to do so may result in disciplinary action or termination of access.

The University does not monitor what individuals do while online, but does respond to all notices from copyright holders alleging inappropriate activity across our networks. If an individual chooses to host or exchange files unlawfully, that individual will be personally responsible for any consequences from that activity. Ignorance of the law is not a useful defense. The University strongly recommends that individuals using University of Washington networks and computers learn the rules and the laws before sharing files on line.
