Copyright [30 marks]
Copyright Law
The copyright policy and statements would follow the copyright law specified in the Copyright Act 1968. The act defines laws related to Intellectual property, neighboring rights and other related laws. The objective of the copyright law is to protect the rights of the original author of a work. A copyright policy provides specific provisions directed by these laws (Monash University, 2018).
Copyright Policy and Procedure
1. Overview
Copyright is the exclusive right given to an owner of a content to
oadcast, publish, adapt or copy it. Copyrights are applied to any content in the form of
oadcasts, sounds, films, software, drama, literature, music or art. The owner of the rights is usually the author or developer of the material. There can be exceptions where some material can be used by other entities or individuals for free or by paying equitably. This copyright policy provides clarification on the use of such material that is copyrighted for BCS Software.
2. Policy
All the copyrighted material used by BCSoft is in accordance with the Copyright Act 1968. BCSoft is the owner of the material used on its website but it allows its distribution to others provided they receive a fair compensation in exchange. This is allowed only to government, educational institutes, and commonwealth units (Australian Government, 2018).
3. Infringement of Copyright
Use of any equipments or tools such as photocopy, material downloading, and photography that leads to infringement of the copyright, is fo
idden. The person committing this infringement would be personally considered liable as per the Copyright Act.
4.    Expiry of Copyright
Copyright for any content expires after 70 years of its production or when the copyrights are not renewed.
5.    Use of Copyright without Infringement
5.1   Voluntary Licence
BCSoft can authorize another person or entity to use the produced content through a licence against which a fee would be paid to the company.
The staff of the company should not use the company logo in their emails unless permitted by authorities.
5.2   Use of Copyright as a Fair Deal
The use of any copyright material can be considered as a “fair deal” if only it is used for study, review or research. The Copyright law does not clearly specifies what can be considered as a fair deal and thus, when in confusion, staff should take the advise of a senior (FGCU, 2012).
5.3   Company Use of Copyright
If the staff makes use of photographs available online, either the copyright fee has to be paid or attribution should be given in case they are allowed to be used for free.
Any online content including project reports, movies, music, and software available should not be downloaded and used by the company staff for publishing or commercial purpose unless the usage license fee is paid for the same.
6.    Copying of Computer Programs
For the staff of the organization, the use of any software on the internal systems would need the licenses to be taken and the staff must not make use of any pirated software in its systems. If the owner of the software available provides a free license then only the staff, may download and use it in the systems. For the purchased software, the staff can create the copies of programs only for the purpose of back-up so that it can be used on another machine only for the purpose of work of BCSoft (Copyrightlaw, 2018).
7. Copyright Documentation
To execute the copyright policy, there is a set of documentation that is prepared, and used by an organization. These include:
Copyright notice: A copyright notice is a statutory form that informs users of an organization and of its services or products about the copyright ownership of the a published work. A copyright notice contains four components that include symbol of copyright, date, author name, and the statement of the rights over the copyrighted content. This notice has to be placed by the organization on places needed such as the website of the company. The copyright notice for the BCSoft would look like below statement:
Copyright © 2018 BCSoft Australia, Inc. All Rights Reserved. and BCSoft logo are registered trade marks of BCSoft Inc. and its affiliates.
Copyright permission form: To use any of the content produced by BCSOft by any other organization or individual, a written permission has to be taken. For this, a copyright permission form has to be filled and submitted to the company. The permission letter that one can use to seek permission to use copyrighted content of BCSoft is presented in the appendix of this report.
Copyright Checklist: A checklist can be used to ensure that all the items that have to be included in the copyright policy and the documents preparation and action needed are documented and checked for their completion. A copy of checklist for BCSoft copyright management is presented in the Appendix of this report.
