Abstract

The legal questions of copyright issues at universities are diverse and regularly demand an analysis that melds the law with a formidable understanding of the institutional mission. This essay surveys some of the dominant copyright issues that arise at universities and examines the gradual development of copyright officer positions that have emerged at many institutions of higher education in the United States.
