It's your responsibility to keep software licences, codes and media in a secure place. Software licence terms & conditions do vary and each licence should be read carefully. Do not assume that it will be the same as previously bought software from the same supplier.
Please remember: copying software without permission is illegal.
In the long term it will not save you or the University money. This warning is no less important for software for which there is a special deal or site licence, since the conditions of these agreements require that records are kept of every copy made. Illegal copying could lead to the withdrawal of our licence and consequently the loss of the discounted pricing.
EduSERV has made available a general form for the acknowledgement of third-party licensing rights. Software Services administer a number of Eduserv site licenses and special purchases.
The form should be filled out and returned to Software Services whenever a member of Staff or a Student takes receipt of a piece of software through one of the University's Eduserv agreements.
