Do People Really Check Copyrights?

Yes, they do -- yes, they have.

ANY content you use from another person or entity, even if attributed to them, can be a potential copyright infringement. Be sure to get permission (and keep a copy) to use any outside text, images or media on your web pages or uploaded documents.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
