3.13 Acceptable Use of Digital Media and Software

Respect for the intellectual work of others is a tradition at UAB. UAB values the free exchange of ideas but not plagiarism or the unauthorized copying of computer software, including programs, applications, and data. It is the policy of UAB to comply with copyright law and license agreements entered into with vendors or authors of computer software. No illegally obtained or illegally copied (often referred to as "pirated") computer software is allowed at UAB. UAB does not, and will not, condone illegal copying of computer software nor the use of illegally copied or obtained computer software as described in the Computer Software Copying and Use Policy. Anyone connected with UAB who makes, uses, or otherwise acquires unauthorized computer software in connection with his or her role at UAB shall be subject to discipline which may include discharge. Additional guidance for software media, and other resources is described in the Acceptable Use of Computer and Network Resources Policy.
