Therefore, we are committed to fulfilling our legal obligation regarding utilization of copyright-protected works.

The United States Congress enacted the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) on October 28, 1998. The Act provides legal protection from liability for copyright infringement to online service providers who comply with the provisions of the Act. Institutions of Higher Education are considered, within the context of the Act, to qualify as online service providers, and are therefore protected by this Act. Hampden-Sydney College has filed the proper forms with the U.S. Copyright Office to receive immunity under the Act.

Upon discovery of Copyright infringements on this site, the copyright holder must submit a signed notice of infringement to the institution, identifying the copyrighted material. The copyright holder must provide contact information (address, phone number, and e-mail address) and a statement that the infringing material is being used without consent.
