Essentially any work or material that includes some intellectual property, regardless of whether it is published or a commercially available product, is covered by copyright.

If you are in doubt, you should assume that content you did not create is covered by copyright.

Obvious examples include:

  • Written material
  • Musical works
  • Dramatic works
  • Artistic works
  • Computer programs
  • Compilations
  • Movies
  • Sound recordings
  • Broadcasts of television and radio programs
  • Published editions such as books, journals, newspapers and magazines
  • Websites and associated files

Please view the Copyright Guide on the University Library website for more information about the above topic as well as other areas of Copyright.
