Copyright and Fair Use Issues: What Nonprofits Need to Know

Gain a better understanding of legalities nonprofits face regarding copyright issues and risk of infringement for using copyrighted materials.

All companies, including nonprofits, are subject to copyright protections afforded to authors of expressive works. Indeed, the law begs many questions that a nonprofit must regularly consider in its day-to-day activities: Do you own the rights in the materials created for you and your marketing materials (including your website)? Are you using materials of third parties? Do you need permissions to do so, or is such use fair use under the copyright law? This topic will explain the types of intellectual property you likely deal with as a nonprofit, specifically focusing on copyright issues to make sure the company owns the rights it intends to own and that it is using materials properly - including recognizing when permission is required to use third-party materials and the risks associated with use of such materials.
