During the course of my research on copyright – and in preparation for a copyright workshop I will be leading in Spring – I happened upon several CSU and Cal Poly copyright policies and resources that faculty and students might find helpful. This list isn’t intended to be exhaustive, but instead provide a variety of resources that are available from the CSU and Cal Poly. Bon appetit!
