The Copy/Mail Center must abide by copyright laws.  It is the responsibility of the department or the person submitting materials to be copied to obtain and be able to produce the appropriate permission to allow the Copy/Mail Center to make copies.  For example, all Hartwick photos must have approval from the Communications department before copies can be made.
