What happens if I share my recording of a class lecture without getting permission first?

If you do publish your recording of a class lecture without the faculty member’s written permission, and it is not in connection with a university complaint or as evidence in a criminal or civil legal proceeding, you could face severe legal and/or disciplinary consequences. Per HB 233, your unauthorized use of the recording allows the faculty member to take you to court for damages, including attorneys’ fees, totaling as much as $200,000.00. Additionally, you may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity for a potential violation of the student code of conduct as described in the Golden Rule.
