The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (1988) and other federal copyright laws govern the distribution and use of copyright materials. These laws protect, among other media, movie and film publishers from unauthorized public showings. It is unlawful, for example, to show a movie on campus without a license unless your event falls within one of the exceptions outlined in the "Fair Use" clause. Before you plan to show a movie on campus, review the Movie Decision Flow Chart to determine if a public viewing license is required. If a license is required, please contact the Student Activities office at least 2 weeks before your event.
IMPORTANT! Avoid personal purchases and reimbursements when possible. Use the HWS PO process, Wegman's Card or cash advance for club expenditures.
Except for purchases made at local businesses (excluding Wegmans), students should avoid purchasing goods or services with personal funds. Goods ordered on the internet, via mail or phone must be done through the PeopleSoft Purchase Order (PO) process. See a Student Activities staff member to initiate a PO at least 2 weeks before you need the order.
