Copyrights and Access to Information

If you receive a SMIP award, you will gen­er­al­ly need to grant a license to Cor­nell Coop­er­a­tive Exten­sion of Ulster Coun­ty (CCEUC) to dis­trib­ute or use copy­rightable mate­ri­als. Through an agree­ment with CCEUC, the City of New York will have the right to dis­trib­ute or use the copy­rightable mate­ri­als for any pur­pose, exclu­sive of right of resale. This approach is con­sis­tent with our sup­port for non-prof­it, pub­lic education.

Excep­tions to the copy­right pol­i­cy are made for sci­en­tif­ic work, where the City does not have the right to change, mod­i­fy or amend any research reports or pub­li­ca­tions based on data or infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed or gath­ered by or under agree­ment with CCEUC.

The SMIP grant recip­i­ent must war­ran­ty that any copy­right, trade­mark, or patent rights of design, sys­tem, draw­ings, graphs, spec­i­fi­ca­tions, or print­ed, audio, or visu­al mat­ter pro­vid­ed or used has been prop­er­ly licensed.
