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.

  • This will be referred to the University's Legal Department.
  • Your connection will be blocked.

  • 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
