In the world of social media, issues of copyright and intellectual property sometimes seem murky.
Copyright laws are applicable online and in social media. Anyone who uses MU intellectual property without obtaining proper permission might be in violation of copyright law. Any MU employee who uses someone else's intellectual property on Mizzou social media might be committing copyright infringement and could create serious legal problems for the University of Missouri.
Everything you do online as a representative of the university can put the university at risk. Be smart. Be responsible.
The University of Missouri System has established rules and resources for online intellectual property. Read them. Learn them. Follow them.
