From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when we deem appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.

COPYRIGHT AND CONTENT USAGE FAQ
What is copyright and why does it matter?
Copyright is a form of legal protection given to authors of original works such as literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, graphic, photographic, software and certain other intellectual works. The copyright owner has the exclusive right to reproduce the work, make new works based on the work, distribute copies, and perform or display the work, during the duration of copyright protection, subject to very limited fair use rights of others to use only such amount as necessary to exercise fair use rights. You should assume all third party content is protected by copyright unless you have determined otherwise with the assistance of legal counsel and you should not rely on fair use except pursuant to advice of legal counsel. You can, however, seek a permission or license to use third party copyright protected content and once obtained will have the right to do so subject to the terms and conditions thereof.
What if I bought a copy of third party content?
If you have purchased a copy of a work (e.g., a DVD of a movie or a CD of music) you generally only have a limited right to view or listen to the work for your personal non-commercial use and the copyright owner retains all other rights, unless otherwise agreed. Accordingly, unless you have permission from the copyright owner, you cannot copy content off your CD and DVD collections or off of the web and post it to this website.
What if I discover I submitted or posted content that includes materials I was not authorized to use?
1. Identification of your User Content and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
2. Identification of all aspects of your User Content for which you lack sufficient authority to grant us the rights granted above with sufficient detail to enable us to identify and remove, delete or disable such aspects;
3. A statement under penalty of perjury that your notice is complete and accurate and that remainder of such User Content is free from any infringement of third party rights;
4. Your physical or electronic signature (i.e., “/s/ [print name]”).
