The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which was enacted in 1998, is targeted at the reproduction and distribution of copyrighted works in the new digital age. The law is very specific about what is and is not allowed, particularly regarding sharing of audio and video files over the Internet. Furthermore, there are clear expectations about what an online service provider must do to ensure that users of the service adhere to the law. As an online service provider, Mercyhurst University has taken steps to comply with the law. Please see the university's Code of Conduct for Use of Information Technology.
