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.
