Copyright Policies and US Copyright

A question to consider: should your Copyright Policy address US and Canadian copyright issues?

Your Copyright Policy is a document that sets out the management of copyright issues in your organization. There are no set items that should go into your policy, merely those that relate to the uses of content in your workplace. So, if you are using content from the U.S., or content that you have licensed is on a Web site or other online portal accessible from the U.S., or your own as well as licensed content is accessed by Canadian employees while travelling in the U.S., then you should address the relevant copyright information in your policy.
