As a professional developer, you may want to use copyrighted materials in your presentations or workshops.
- Ask permission in writing so you have a hard copy for your records.
- Make sure you give yourself at least two weeks so you receive permission in time.
- Give your name, title, and organization.
- Write the title and author of the article along with the publication, date, volume, and issue number, and pages you wish to duplicate.
- Explain how you plan to use the article.
- Number of copies you plan to make.
- The date you will need the copies.
In some cases, you will be asked to pay a fee for the copies. For complete information on fair use, copyright, and intellectual property, go to http://www.utsystem.edu/ogc/intellectualproperty/copypol2.htm
