What is copyright (©)?

Copyright is a term, represented by the © symbol, that indicates who the usage rights holder is. This may be the author or the assignee if the usage rights have been assigned.

In a work, the name of the rights holder, and the place and year of dissemination of the work must be stated, followed by the © symbol.

The UOC is strongly committed to respect for intellectual property rights, which is one of the cornerstones of its institutional policy. This commitment is manifest, on the one hand, in the countless agreements that the University has signed with rights holders for the use of external resources in the classroom, and on the other, in the license signed with CEDRO some years ago, for which the UOC was the first university to sign up to this institution and one of its leading contributors.
