As a PR and communications professional you’re no stranger to disseminating information to your constituents. What you may not be familiar with, however, is copyright compliance and the effects sharing protected content may have on you and your clients.
“Most blogs and online sources are subject to copyright and are not in the public domain. Fair-use allows for limited use of content with proper citation depending on the purpose and character of the use, the nature of the copyrighted work, how much of the content is used relative to the work as a whole, and whether the use will affect the potential market for or value of the content. Who is sharing and using the content also is considered when determining if the use falls under the fair-use doctrine,” explains this Copyright Compliance Primer from BurrellesLuce.

BurrellesLuce Complimentary Webinar: Copyright Compliance – What Every Media Relations Professional Should KnowDecember 7th, 2012
When: Tuesday, December 11, 2012

As a communications or PR practitioner, you are under increasing pressure to prove the value of what you do. Now, with technology and the availability of digital content, the line between sharing and plagiarizing becomes increasingly blurred.
Anyone can pull material from the Internet, share it, and declare it their own. It is easy for organizations and professionals to unwittingly fall into the plagiarism trap. The consequences of copyright infringement also are serious and content providers are enforcing laws to protect and manage the rights of their content.
