Copyright Response Procedures

When Lewis & Clark receives a copyright infringement claim involving music, video, software, games or other digital material, it takes the following steps per the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998:


First Offense:

  • The Information Security Officer (ISO) is the College‚Äôs registered copyright agent.  Only requests addressed to the registered agent are acknowledged.
  • The ISO validates all infringement claims to correlate timestamp information with the user activity reported.
  • If a correlation is determined, the ISO initiates a TrackIT work order for the offender to respond within 48 hours in writing that the offending file has been removed from their system.
  • If no response is received within 72 hours, network access is suspended immediately and the claim details will be turned over to the student conduct system.

Second Offense:

  • If a second infringement claim is received for the same student within the academic year, network access is suspended immediately and the claim details are turned over to the student conduct system.

System Status

  • Apple has recently released their new operating system for iMacs called Mojave.  Until we’ve had a chance to run the new OS through our vetting process, we would strongly encourage you to hold off upgrading your computers for the time being.  We will let you know once we feel confident that our network, tools and software will work properly with Mojave.
