MyColLife fully supports US and international copyright law and requires all of
our employees to fulfill our moral and legal obligations with respect to our use
of the copyright protected materials of others. To that end, and in fulfillment
of our commitment to protect the principles of copyright in general, employees of
[Company] should seek permission to use copyrighted works whenever appropriate and,
when unsure whether permission is required, seek advice from the Copyright Officer
MyColLife acknowledges that copyright infringement is a violation of the law and
may impose civil and/or criminal liability on the individual infringer, as well
as on the infringer’s employer. Therefore, every employee is required to comply
with copyright law and adhere to this copyright policy. Failure to do so may result
in disciplinary action.
MyColLife copyright policy provides a brief summary of U.S. copyright law, particularly
as it relates to the use of others' copyright-protected materials, including published
materials, and to provide procedures for obtaining copyright permission that should
be used consistently throughout MyColLife a subsidiary of Alliance Education Technology,
The goal of this policy is meant to fulfill our obligations under copyright law
and to acknowledge our respect for the rights of others. MyColLife provides the
following rules and procedures relating to copyright compliance when using copyrighted
materials both internally among coworkers and external to MyColLife. It is our expectation
that each employee, consultant, contractor or agent of MyColLife will adhere to
these policies and procedures.
Copyright laws are generally not straightforward and they have many gray areas.
The goal of this policy is to provide MyColLife’s employees (whether on a permanent,
temporary or contract basis) consultants, and agents with a uniform approach to
addressing complex copyright issues. MyColLife has designated The MyColLife COO
as the Copyright Officer to administer our organization's copyright policy. The
COO will oversee periodic updates to the policy, as well as updates resulting from
related changes in policy or law. The aim of this policy is to provide practical
advice and procedures, but it is not a substitute for legal advice. Proper legal
advice should be obtained whenever necessary. Questions regarding this policy and
other topics such as fair use should be directed to COO, Copyright Officer. The
COO can also assist you in obtaining advice from a lawyer if needed.
What is Copyright?
The purpose of copyright law is to provide authors and other creators (and those
who obtain rights through such persons) with an incentive to create and share creative
works by granting them exclusive rights to control how their works may be used.
Among the exclusive rights granted to those authors are the rights to reproduce,
distribute, publicly perform and publicly display a work. These rights provide copyright
holders control over the use of their creations, and an ability to benefit, monetarily
and otherwise, from the exploitation of their works. Copyright also protects the
right to “make a derivative work,” such as a movie from a book; the right to include
a piece in a collective work, such as publishing an article in a book or journal;
and the rights of attribution and integrity for “authors” of certain works of visual
art. If you are not the copyright holder, you must ordinarily obtain permission
prior to re-using or reproducing someone else’s copyrighted work. Acknowledging
the source of a work, for instance, is not a substitute for obtaining permission.
However, permission generally is not necessary for actions that do not implicate
the exclusive rights of the copyright holder, such as reviewing, reading or borrowing
a book or photograph.
What is Protected by Copyright?
The rights granted under the U.S. Copyright Act (embodied in Title 17 of the U.S.
Code) are intended to benefit “authors” of “original works of authorship,” including
literary, dramatic, musical, architectural, cartographic, choreographic, pantomimic,
pictorial, graphic, sculptural and audiovisual creations. This means that virtually
any creative work that you may come across in readable or viewable format, including
books, magazines, journals, newsletters, maps, charts, photographs, graphic materials;
unpublished materials, such as analysts' reports and consultants' advice; and non-print
materials, including Web sites, computer programs and other software, databases,
sound recordings, motion pictures, video files, sculptures and other artistic works
are almost certainly protected by copyright.
What is NOT Protected by Copyright?
Not everything is protected by copyright. This includes: works that are not fixed;
titles, names, slogans; ideas, facts and data; listings of ingredients or contents;
natural or self-evident facts; and public domain works (more on this below). Some
of these things may, however, be protected under other areas of law, such as patent
or trademark law, or by contract. It is important to be sure that no other form
of protection restricts the use of such materials before using them.
How Long Does Copyright Protection Last?
In the U.S., a work created on or after January 1, 1978 is ordinarily protected
for a term equal to the author's life plus 70 years after the author's death. This
is called the “life-plus-70” rule. Works created by companies or other types of
organizations have a copyright term of 95 years. For works created before 1978,
the duration of protection depends on a number of factors. For comprehensive information
on duration, see: https://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ1.html#hlc.
Fair use is a defense under U.S. law that may be raised by the defendant in a copyright
infringement case. Fair use recognizes that certain types of use of other people's
copyright protected works do not require the copyright holder's authorization. The
fair use doctrine is codified in Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act. See: www.copyright.gov/title17/.
Although there are no absolute rules around fair use, generally the reproduction
(photocopy or digital) or use of someone else’s copyright-protected work is more
likely to be found to be a fair use if it is for one of the following purposes:
criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship or academic research.
To determine whether a particular use qualifies as fair use, the statute requires
a fact-specific analysis of the use, based upon four factors:
1. The purpose and character of the use (for example, whether for commercial or
nonprofit educational use).
2. The nature of the copyright-protected work (is it primarily factual or highly
3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used.
4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyright-protected
All four factors must be considered and balanced against the other factors as part
of each fair use analysis. Although some see fair use as a solution to many of their
reproduction activities, the scope of the fair use doctrine is much narrower than
most people assume. Further, fair use is an ambiguous notion and the law does not
state exactly how, or how much of, a work may be used without obtaining permission.
As a consequence, even copyright law experts often have a difficult time predicting
the outcome in cases involving fair use.
The bottom line is that fair use requires an appropriate risk assessment as to whether
re-use under certain circumstances may be considered fair use. In order to avoid
any copyright risk, MyColLife permits uses of short quotes from works. Otherwise,
permission procedures as set out in this policy should be followed and the advice
of MyColLife’s Copyright Officer should be sought in instances where a fair use
determination may be necessary.
Copyright and Foreign Works
The U.S. is a member of two major copyright treaties, the Berne Convention and the
Universal Copyright Convention. As such, when MyColLife uses a copyright-protected
work from almost any other country, U.S. copyright law applies to the use of that
work, assuming the use takes place in the United States. Similarly, the copyright
laws of other participating countries apply to the use of U.S. works in those countries.
While these treaties establish certain conventions that render the laws of participating
countries consistent to some degree, there are differences in each country’s law
and MyColLife Copyright Officer should be consulted if there are questions regarding
the use of materials by employees or others outside the U.S. Licensing intermediaries
such as Copyright Clearance Center offer agreements that allow the use of materials
from other countries as well as the use of materials across borders, which can simplify
the permission process a great deal.
Copyright and Digital Works
Any non-digital content that is protected by copyright is also protected in a digital
form. For example, print books are protected by copyright law, as are electronic
books. A print letter is protected by copyright law, as is an e-mail letter. In
both cases, the copyright is generally owned by the author, regardless of who has
received the letter. Whenever you wish to use material found on a website, it is
those terms will tell you what use, if any, you can make of the materials you find
there. When obtaining permission to use works on the Web (such as posting them on
MyColLife’s public-facing corporate website), always attempt to obtain worldwide
rights, as most Web uses of content are on a global basis.
MyColLife Employee’s Obligations under Copyright Law
No employee of MyColLife may reproduce any copyrighted work in print, video or digital
form in violation of the law. Works are considered protected even if they are not
registered with the U.S. Copyright Office and employees of MyColLife must assume
that most materials used are copyrighted until proven otherwise.
If an employee wants to use material that is not covered by copyright, he or she
should confirm that the material is not protected by any other area of law, such
as trademark or trade secret law. If it has been created by an employee of the company,
they can use the material freely, subject to the guidelines set forth at the end
of this document any corporate policies on the use of company-generated materials.
If there is any doubt whether a work is covered by copyright it is best to be cautious
and to follow the procedures established for the use of copyrighted works.
When a work is copyrighted, you must seek out and receive through a license or the
express written permission of the copyright holder, the right to reuse the copyrighted
work in order to avoid an infringement of copyright, unless it is determined in
consultation with the Copyright Officer and, if appropriate, legal counsel, that
the use would constitute a fair use.
MyColLife has negotiated licenses with publishers and other copyright holders that
allow employees to use and share their materials. These licenses have restrictions
what the permitted uses are before copying or sharing any copyrighted materials.
Please consult and implement the procedures outlined in this policy.
Any employee who violates MyColLife copyright policy may be subject to disciplinary
action up to and including termination.
MyColLife Rights with Regard to Computer Systems and Software
MyColLife reserves the right to monitor employee computer systems (including desktop,
lap top and handheld devices) and any content stored on an employee’s computer system.
MyColLife also reserves the right to remove, delete, modify or otherwise disable
access to any materials found to be infringing of copyright.
Any shareware or software to be used on MyColLife’s computers should be licensed
by MyColLife if they are to be used by an employee, consultant or contractor. For
the security and safety of our systems they should also be installed with the permission
and assistance of our Information Technology staff. Employees are reminded that
all computers, equipment and software supplied by MyColLife are subject to periodic
If an employee is issued a password to access information licensed by MyColLife
the employee is expected to take all reasonable measures to protect the security
of the password and not to share the password with anyone.
Use of Company-Created Materials
Whenever an employee of MyColLife creates written or other creative material (such
as a Web presentation or audiovisual piece), that material is presumptively protected
by copyright. Works created within the scope of or related to your job are automatically
owned by the Company as “works made for hire” under the U.S. Copyright Act. When
works are to be created by contractors or consultants to MyColLife the contract
with such contractor or consultant should specify that all works created under that
contract are deemed to be “works for hire” and that if such works do not become
the property of MyColLife as a matter of law, the contractor or consultant thereby
assigns all of his/her/its rights in such works to MyColLife. Please consult with
the Copyright Officer or manager if you have any questions regarding the engagement
of outside contractors or consultants.
When you use company-created copyrighted materials, you should always include a
proper copyright notice on any materials that will be distributed outside the company.
Of course, any external distribution is also subject to any confidentiality restrictions
applicable to that material. If you become aware of any unauthorized use or distribution
of company-created materials, you should promptly notify the Copyright Officer or
legal counsel so that appropriate actions may be taken.
MyColLife may add additional guidelines as appropriate with respect to the use of
How to Obtain Copyright Permission
Fact Finding Questions
Once you have identified the materials you want to use, ask yourself the following
questions: Is the work the type of work protected by copyright? If so, are you using
the work in a manner that implicates the exclusive rights of the copyright holder?
Is it likely that the work is still protected? If the answer is YES to these questions,
then you must locate the copyright holder. Is the name of the copyright owner on
the materials? Does Copyright Clearance Center represent that work? Locating the
copyright holder may take some investigative and creative work. Consult with the
Copyright Officer to see if she or he can offer any guidance or point you in the
direction of someone within the company who can. The U.S. Copyright Office at the
Library of Congress (www.loc.gov) may be of assistance in locating a copyright owner.
Permission to use copyright-protected materials should be obtained prior to using
those materials. It is best to obtain permission in writing, which may be by e-mail,
and to ensure that the Copyright Officer has a copy of each permission form or letter.
The time needed to obtain permission may vary. When possible, it is recommended
to start the permission procedure well in advance of the time that you wish to use
the materials. If you need fast turnaround on a permission request, let the copyright
owner know this and he/she may get back to you faster. The copyright owner, his/her
representative and/or the licensing intermediary that represents the kind of permission
you are seeking, will require certain specific information in order to provide you
with that permission. Some organizations prepare a standard request form for all
of their employees to use.
Each permission request should include the following information:
• Title of the material
• Creator/author of the material
• Description of material
• ISBN or ISSN, if applicable (standard numbers used on most published text material)
• Date of publication, if applicable
• Purpose for which you wish to reproduce the item (research, commercial, educational,
• How the material is to be reproduced (e.g., photocopied, digitized)
• Where the reproduced material will appear (including internal vs. external use)
and for how long
If MyColLife holds an Annual Copyright License from Copyright Clearance Center:
MyColLife holds an Annual Copyright License from Copyright Clearance Center (CCC).
The license enables employees of MyColLife in the United States to lawfully reproduce
and distribute content in CCC’s repertory, in print or electronic format, within
the company. Under the license, MyColLife employees can photocopy excerpts from
newspapers, magazines, journals and other copyright-protected works licensed by
Copyright Clearance Center, as often as needed. Employees can also e-mail articles
of interest to other employees, share articles by posting them on our company intranet
sites, and scan content when a digital original is not available. Please note that
the license is not intended to replace subscriptions or eliminate the need to purchase
content that is used on a regular basis at MyColLife. The Annual Copyright License
enables us to share printed copies (but not electronic copies) of materials with
external colleagues on an occasional basis. To search the online catalog and verify
coverage under [Company’s] license with CCC, go to www.copyright.com and click on
If MyColLife holds a Multinational Annual Copyright License from Copyright Clearance
MyColLife also holds a Multinational Annual Copyright License from Copyright Clearance
Center. The licenses enable MyColLife employees located outside the United States
to lawfully reproduce and distribute content within the company, just like MyColLife’s
U.S.-based employees. The multinational licenses apply to MyColLife employees based
in more than 160 countries worldwide and pertain to English-language works from
the U.S, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia, with some exceptions.
For a current listing of countries and exceptions, go to www.copyright.com/multnationalcoverage.
MyColLife may also work with Copyright Clearance Center to obtain permission to
reproduce and distribute copyright-protected text works in print and digital formats
for external use. To obtain permission to reproduce text-based works outside of
MyColLife that are not covered by our annual license or other prior agreements,
employees should request permission online at www.copyright.com or contact the Rights
and Licensing Department of the copyright holder.
If MyColLife does not work with Copyright Clearance Center, you must contact the
copyright holder directly. As mentioned, locating the copyright holder may take
some time, as well as some investigative and creative work.
The Copyright Office at the Library of Congress (www.loc.gov) may be of assistance
in locating a copyright owner. Questions regarding non-text works and questions
pertaining to specific procedures should be directed to [Name], who serves as our
