Chances are, you are coming to this page because you have received a notice in your campus email account and/or received a warning window on the campus residential network notifying you that your network access has been restricted to Campus Only web sites, due to a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Complaint.
You may have also ended up on this page because you would like to test your knowledge on Copyright. If this is the case, please continue to the Copyright Education Section on this page.
How does this notice affect you?
Your ResNet network access privileges will be restricted to Campus Only websites and email for a minimum of two full weeks and an Enrollment Hold will be placed on your student account pending completion of the following items:
- Delete the records identified in the email sent to you and any other copyrighted materials you may be sharing, or stop sharing copyright material without permission.
- Complete the Copyright Education Course and pass the course with a 100% (https://ecommons.ucsc.edu/xsl-portal)
Because you will be limited to UCSC only websites while using the Residential Network during your restriction, you will need to use machines in the campus computer labs or those located at the campus library to complete the Copyright Education Course. Please see below for more information on the Copyright Education Course.
