Copyright Infringement Warning (Downloading)

The College is concerned to ensure that Members of College and Common Room do not download films and other copyright material.

Such actions are likely to be detected by copyright owners, and proceedings can be taken against the University, College and person concerned. Such actions may involve Civil Proceedings with punitive compensation and legal costs.

In the event of such downloads being detected, the following actions are likely to occur:

  • The University will be served with a 'Cease and Desist' notice by the copyright owner.
  • This will be referred to the University's Legal Department.
  • Your connection will be blocked.
  • You will receive an email/letter from the College's Computing Officer, advising you of the situation and requiring you to comply with the rules and certain procedures.
  • You will be required to remove all copyright-infringing material and related unlicensed software.
  • Your computer will be inspected by the College's Computing Officer (or other authorised member of staff).
  • The University will make a charge to the College (currently £50 plus VAT on first instance) which will be charged to you through the College battels system, together with a £10 College Administration charge plus VAT.
  • You will be reported to the Vicegerent for disciplinary action.
  • The Vicegerent may impose a fine or other penalty, additionally to the above charges.
  • Your computer may be unblocked when it is cleared of copyright-infringing material and you have agreed not to repeat such action.
  • In the case of repeated offending, your connection may be barred altogether.
  • You will still be at risk of Civil Action by the copyright owner

What counts as evidence in the Social Sciences?
Tuesday 16 January -
5:30pm to 6:30pm

Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: anthropology, economics, law, the internet, and so on. People can generally do whatever they like, and so their behaviour is not governed by rules in the same way as the phenomena studied by physicists and chemists. Given this, what kinds of questions can social scientists answer, and how do they do it? Do different kinds of social scientists have different approaches to evidence, and if so how?
