There are some remaining issues toresolve, a number of which were discussed in an email that Aaron sent to me at the end of last week. I have summarized these issues briefly below.1. Most importantly, at this point, SEC is not an approved undergraduate student group, despite its connection to the former TECH student group. Therefore, theSEC must go through the normal steps for approval and authorization from the College. This procedure is not difficult, as you know, and Dean Judith Kidd hasadvised me that she will expedite the approval process for SEC. However, there are certain items SEC must provide for Dean Kidd to move forward; I believe heroffice, through Susan Cooke, has already been in touch with you about this.2. Once SEC is approved by the College, it will have permission to use the Harvard name, but the Provost's office (which oversees use of name issues) hasadvised that you must use Harvard College rather than simply Harvard, meaning that the name of the group will become Harvard CollegeSEC. Please also be aware that the Provost's office is now reviewing the use of Harvard's name in domain names, a practise that is not allowed. It is quitepossible that, as a result of this review, all student groups with domain names that include Harvard will be required to change their URLs. Although this is not nowa requirement for you, it may be worth your preemptively changing the domain name, removing the name Harvard from it and any related pages. That way you cantake care of this before your list of subscribers gets much bigger.Most importantly, you must make clear that your group is a student group and is not operated by Harvard University. For houseSYSTEM, Aaron's proposeddisclaimer houseSYSTEM is not endorsed by or operated by Harvard University is sufficient. This disclaimer must appear on every page of the site. Additionally,to ensure that there is no confusion, you should continue to use your own shield on your sites. The design is clear and quite good, and helps to distinguish thesites from official University sites.3. As I mentioned in my previous email, simply because a work is available on the web does not make it available to be copied, even with proper attribution.Copyrighted content can only be reproduced with the permission of the copyright holders. The University owns the copyright to all content on the House web sitesbut once SEC is officially approved by the College you may approach the Masters of each House directly and ask for permission to use content from their sites.Without express permission of the HouseMasters, nothing on Harvard's House websites can be duplicated. Once permission is granted, you will still need to provide attribution, followed by a note stating: Used with permission. (As an aside, your use of the Spider Man theme on the houseSYSTEM site may also be a copyright violation. Since Hollywood and the music industry are crackingdown heavily on infringements of copyright, you may want to reconsider your use of that material.)4. As for the proposed face book, the College will not permit the SEC to post on your site information that it collects or maintains about students. Federal lawimposes strict obligations on the College with regard to the dissemination of student information, including names, addresses, phone numbers and photographs.The College therefore will not release information of this kind to you, or to any other student group for that matter, even with students' consent. I should alsoremind you that it is a violation ofCollege rules to gather such data from a Harvard source and recompile it in any form. You cannot, therefore, simply take information from house facebooks andpost it on your site. If you have specific questions about this issue, please feel free to contact me.To sum up, once SEC has received official approval from the College and you have addressed the above issues, you will be able to reopen the site to newmembers. As I stated, Dean Kidd has promised to fast-track the approval process, so it is in your interest to get the required information to her as soon as  THINK COMPUTER CORPORATION CONFIDENTIALTHINK COMPUTER CORPORATION CONFIDENTIAL 3 possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Again, I would like to have the opportunity to meet with all of you when you return to theCambridge area.JayJohn (Jay) Ellison, PhDAllston Burr Senior Tutor in Lowell HouseLecturer on Near Eastern Languages and CivilizationsHarvard UniversityLowell House Office10 Holyoke PlaceCambridge, MA 02138-7566Off: 617-495-2283Fax: 617-495-2523lo-abst@fas.harvard.edu Friday, August 29, 2003 4:00 P.M.
