All CSI publications, surveys, and websites, including gocsi.com are copyrighted. As such, copying or other redistribution of content from these sources -- in whole or in part -- violates the law in virtually every country around the world. Such violations may subject you to fines for each violation, and these fines can quickly reach levels of US$100,000 or more.*
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 ALERT to colleagues
- Print out a single copy of your online ALERT and route it to colleagues
You may not:
- Share your username and password with a colleague
- Put an ALERT or online content on your network, unless licensed to do so
- Republish or repackage content from ALERTs, publications, surveys, reports or web sites
- Copy or email an entire issue of an ALERT, survey or report
- Routinely copy and distribute portions of an ALERT, survey, report or online content, specifically including price information
