Use of Copyrighted Music on College and University Campuses

September 16, 2013

 

​Music is heard on campus in many different situations. Most music is legally protected by copyrights, so navigating copyright law as it impacts the varied uses of music can be a struggle for colleges and universities.

Music copyrights are not dealt with on a daily basis on most campuses. Various departments or administrators may share responsibilities for this area, and staff turnover may leave a new person in charge with little information about the steps the institution needs to take to comply with copyright requirements.

The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and ACE have issued a joint report, Use of Copyrighted Music on College and University Campuses, on how campuses might handle music copyright issues.

The report is intended as an overview and should not be used as a substitute for the advice of informed legal counsel.
