A letter was distributed to the university community which included recommendations to departments with regard to their computing assets.
T. Schellhardt suggested, since the IRMC is a council, that we rename the subcommittees and begin referring to them as committees.
A motion was made by Don Foster to approve the October minutes. The motion was seconded by Gary Leitnaker. Motion passed.
The attached handout was distributed. T. Schellhardt suggested that the council provide a charge to the committee. Several questions were raised such as: (1) how will this committee interact with the university's e-commerce committee, and (2) will this committee be concerned with anything that generates revenue or will there be a more specific focus?
H. Townsend informed the council that he will be enforcing a "one strike and you are out" policy regarding illegal postings (primarily copy right violations) by students on equipment in the resident halls. J. Darbyshire indicated that her committee on Education and Policy Promotion would work with housing to help educate students regarding this policy violation.
J. Murray distributed the final draft of the Intellectual Property Policy. He asked the council members to review the policy and to email comments to him. He will compile the comments and share them with the committee. R. Dyer distributed a letter from the provost to the council requesting that comments on the Intellectual Property Policy be forwarded to him by January 24. CITAC and the Deans' Council were also asked to comment.
J. Darbyshire reported that her committee has recommended that a notice be forwarded to students in various formats to advise them to have their email forwarded to a central location if they have more that one email account. Her committee will be exploring a second reading on the role of the VPAST regarding college controlled LANS. The committee has completed their interviews of LAN administrators regarding training and will be forthcoming with a report.
