Book piracy has been added to the list of proscribed conduct in the student code of conduct in the MIIS Policies and Standards Manual, available online:

  • Book piracy is a form of illegal copyright infringement. It happens by downloading textbooks or other books or copyrighted materials from a file-share website or in other ways. Often, a version of a textbook has been copied or scanned and uploaded to a computer. Sometimes downloads are unauthorized copies of purchased books. MIIS’ disciplinary policies are interpreted to prohibit book piracy by all members of the community.
