What am I not permitted to do with MCL Global content?

You cannot do anything other than make use of the content as set out above, unless you buy the appropriate licence, see below for details. By way of example only, this means that you cannot:

    * If you are a registered user or subscriber, share your user name and password (which includes PINs) with anyone else. A password is for one person’s use. Sharing a password means a copy of our content may subsequently be made by someone who is not authorised to do so. Password sharing is a breach of our terms and conditions and is likely to result in an infringement of copyright. We can now monitor usage to detect password sharing.
    * Copy, publish or redistribute full text articles, photographs, graphics, tables or images in any way.
    * Archive or store any of our content for access by anyone other than yourself.
    * Create derivative works from our content, unless you are creating summaries as described above.
    * Photocopy or scan copies of articles.

I thought that as long as I linked back to your website or published an attribution, that there are no restrictions on how I can use your content?

This is not correct. Merely providing a link or an attribution is not a defence to copyright infringement.
Why does it matter if I copy MCL Global content without permission?

Unauthorised copying is a way of avoiding paying for the value you are gaining by using the content. We make a significant investment in creating MCL Global content to deliver value to you and to make a return on that investment. If we are unable to protect that investment by licensing our content and collecting revenue, then it threatens our ability to continue to create the content.
What about “fair dealing” or “fair use” − doesn’t that allow me to copy things for the purpose of reporting news or current events?

Copyright law does allow, to a limited extent, republication for certain limited purposes, including the reporting of news or current events. We recommend that you take independent legal advice on the exact meaning of these terms if you want to rely on them. Unless your use of our content is permitted by this Copyright Policy, it is likely that we regard it as “unfair” and a breach of our terms and conditions.
Is all material published on MCL Global protected by copyright?

Yes, it is, so is all of the content we publish in our monthly magazine as well as MCL Global content published on third party platforms. Our content is also protected in other ways, for example, protected as a database by way of database rights.
I have some questions about your policy, who should I contact?
