The Copyright Problem: Don’t Forward that Content or You Might Become a Content Pirate

By Nikki Daniel, Director Global Content, Moreover

Do you ever forward an article to people – either internally or outside of your company? Silly question, right? Everyone does it because it’s so easy and lightning fast to share news and information via email, social media, or texts.

And that’s the problem: because it’s so easy, we often don’t stop to think about whether we actually have the right to share the content. It’s an issue we all need to take seriously, especially now that the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) is cracking down on content piracy.

Are You a Content Pirate?

Many marketers and PR professionals are not aware of the rules around copying, sharing, excerpting, and posting third-party content appropriately. Put simply, sharing another person’s copyrighted work constitutes infringement unless a license or permission is obtained from the copyright holder, or it falls within the realm of “fair use.”

While the topic is complex, you can’t afford to ignore it. Publishers have become more aggressive about protecting their copyrighted content; waging and winning legal battles that result in substantial financial rewards.

The SIIA Steps In

The SIIA launched an initiative aimed at ensuring that companies who are copying, distributing, posting, and using content are properly licensed. According to the SIIA, content piracy carries huge commercial and reputational risks. Damages range in the hundreds of thousands – and sometimes millions – of dollars.

Licensing Protects You

One way to reduce the risk of copyright non-compliance is to get a license for using the content. Many individual publishers offer licensing options. The problem is that tracking content licenses can become a logistical nightmare: which content requires a license, how long can it be kept, and can it be redistributed?
