Copyright Violators Get Fines

The law requires all residence community residents respect copyright holders' materials that may be available through the Internet. Internet user agreements between Minnesota State Mankato, residents, and the residence community Internet provider, Charter Communications, are included in this law.  When downloading a copyrighted item (including music, videos, movies, books, art work, etc.) it is the responsibility of the downloader to make sure that they are legally downloaded, frequently requiring a fee.

Upon notification of a copyright infringement, Charter Communications will notify the Department of Residential Life.  Residential Life will notify the resident and access to the residence community Internet system for that individual will be removed.  Access will be restored to the affected resident when all copyright infringement notice requirements are met.  Those requirements often require paying for the copyright, removing the item from the computer, and viewing a website with copyright information.
