IT Resource Licensing
IT Resource Security Standards - Resource Licensing
Licensing as it pertains to software applications are subject to a variety of civil and criminal laws. The University of Winnipeg expects the University community to understand and respect these laws when using campus IT Resources.
- When and where applicable, campus-wide license packages for IT Resources are purchased. These licenses cover a vast majority of IT Resources on campus. Departments who acquire these packages are responsible for ensuring license counts match that of licenses used on IT Resources.
- Departments and individuals installing software applications on IT Resources that are not part of campus-wide licensing packages are responsible for acquiring and maintaining the proper license for that application.
- All software applications must be accompanied by a legitimate license. This can be a dated invoice, receipt of purchase, completed license registration card or license card with a valid serial number. Media such as diskettes or CDROMs and software manuals do not constitute a valid license.
