Protecting Your Own Copyright
If you received a stipend, salary, or financial support from NDSU, there may be restrictions on your ability to file for copyright for your disquisition.
See Sub-section 8 governing Student Work/Intellectual Property in NDSU Policy Manual Section 190 for more information.
Additionally, funding from sources outside of NDSU may carry restrictions on your ability to file for copyright for your disquisition. Check with the source that provided funding to you for more information.
Respecting the Copyright of Others
Reproducing in its entirety the copyrighted material produced by another without express written permission may be a violation of copyright law. In such cases, you must request written permission from the copyright holder.

Copyright and Your Previously Published Work
If you include previously published work as part of your disquisition, you need to ensure that the publisher who published your work has not placed restrictions on your right to reproduce or redistribute this work. Check with the publisher in question to obtain any copyright permission required.
