Some important facts about copyright infringement:
• You can be sued for copyright infringement even if your account has been suspended.
• The length of a copied document does not matter, nor does the amount you may have copied: even a copying a small portion of a document may cause you to be liable for copyright infringement.
• A copyright notice (©) is not required for a work to be protected by copyright law.
• Distributing copyrighted content without the copyright owner’s permission is copyright infringement even if you give the document away for free.
• You can be liable for copyright infringement even if you give attribution to the owner or author of the copyrighted content.
• Even if you used your creativity to make a new document that contained another person’s copyrighted work, you may be liable for copyright infringement.
• There are no exceptions
• As a general rule crown copyright lasts 50 years from the end of year of publication. For unpublished crown copyright its 125 years but as these are not in the public domain their issue will never raise it’s head. For commercial and private works it is 70 years after the death of the author, or if the author is not known or traceable 70 years from end of year of publication.
• If in doubt ASK !!!
• Even thought all files are individually checked, BOCN, its moderators or service provider will not be held liable for any copyright infringements. All infringements will be held solely with document uploader.
