Copyright @ MQ

Understanding copyright is fundamental for educators and researchers who create and engage with a range of material on a daily basis. While copyright can be complicated, there are some simple facts that are critical to the work of a University that should be understood by all staff and students.

The information on the library's website gives a basic introduction to copyright, what it protects and how the protection works.


Plagiarism is using the work or ideas of another person and presenting this as your own without clear acknowledgement of the source of the work or ideas.
