About copyrights

The copyright law protects DCMGA’s ownership of documents and photos we create. It also protects the rights of others who publish their work in print or on the web. Copyright laws apply to text, videos, graphics and pictures. Documents do not need to display the copyright symbol – although that helps – to receive protection. Don’t use other people’s creations without permission or attribution for any documents that will be published, given to the public, placed on the website, offered for sale or submitted for awards. If you would like additional information, please refer to Copyright Law summary.

Because pictures often enhance presentations, flyers and brochures, here are two websites that offer millions of pictures for free and require only that the photographer receive attribution. Here more information on using images courtesy of TechSoup.
