As a community of creative professionals, respect for artists’ intellectual property rights is an important principle of our institution. This is one of the important reasons we ask all SVA faculty, administrators and students to carefully consider when they are using copyrighted content, and if it is necessary to request permission beforehand.


Below is some basic information about copyright and fair use. Additionally, there are tools and resources to determine if a work may be used without permission under fair use rights, and how to request permission for uses not covered by fair use.
