HEOA Annual Disclosure Process
The HEAO requires higher education institutions to participate in provisions intended to reduce illegal download and upload of copyrighted material through peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing.
- Annual disclosure to network users that the illegal distribution of copyrighted material can subject them to criminal and civil penalties occurs through multiple methods:
- Once yearly, students are required to acknowledge and agree to the Student Code of Conduct. This Code includes information about Wittenberg's process and penalties enforcing copyright infringement law and includes information regarding criminal and civil penalties students may be subject to under federal law.
- Once yearly, e-mail sent to all students by Wittenberg's Dean of Students and Chief Information Officer will reinforce and remind students of the possible Wittenberg, criminal, and civil penalties they may incur by participating in copyright infringement.
- Once yearly, all students will electronically sign through WittLink Portal the Access to and Use of Computing Resources and copyright statement included in the Student Code of Conduct.
