Working with the Copyright Upload Form

Before you click the submit button when uploading files, you'll need to confirm the copyright authorization(s) that apply to the uploaded material(s), from the options below. If uploaded materials contain content from different sources, (such as a PowerPoint slide that contains multiple images), authorization is required for each source and such information should be recorded by selecting as many copyright options as are applicable.
