In addition, no user may use or make available other users’ contributions to a Harvard Wiki in a way that would infringe or violate the copyright or other rights of those contributors.  If a wiki administrator wishes to be able to make a Harvard Wiki accessible (either immediately or in the future) to an audience broader than the Harvard users who are authorized to contribute to the wiki, the administrator should so inform all contributors.  The administrator should similarly inform all contributors if the wiki will be made available under particular license terms – such as one of the Creative Commons licenses.  All contributors to the Harvard Wiki who are so informed in advance and who have a copyright interest in their contributions agree by contributing that their contributions may be made available in the manner specified.  Wiki contributors also should recognize that the collaborative nature of the wiki may affect their rights in their contributions – for example, by possibly giving rise to a joint work, in which the copyright is jointly owned by multiple contributors.  General information and resources on copyright law and fair use may be found ,at http://www.techtransfer.harvard.edu/resources/policies/IP/.  General information and resources on copyright law and fair use may be found, among other places, athttp://ogc.harvard.edu/copyright_docs/index.php.

Your name and contributions to a Harvard Wiki will be made available to the administrator and other contributors to the wiki. Depending on the scope of access given to the wiki by its administrator, your name and contributions may be made available to the public.   Questions about who can view the wiki, your contributions and your name should be directed to the administrator.
