Illegal copying includes sharing of online access or regular printing of multiple copies, photocopying, faxing or other redistribution.
All copyrighted publications are governed by the doctrine of "fair use" that allows copying in limited circumstances. That means...
- Copy or email — on an occasional basis — a single story or article and send it to a colleague
- Route a single copy of a printed newsletter to colleagues
- Print out a single copy of your online newsletter and route it to colleagues
You may not:
- Share your username and password with a colleague
- Put a newsletter or online content on your network, unless licensed to do so
- Republish or repackage content from newsletters, reports or web sites
- Copy or email an entire issue of a newsletter or report
- Routinely copy and distribute portions of a newsletter, report or online content, specifically including price information
