DoGoodery Interpretation of “Non-commercial”
Non-commercial use means that users may not sell, profit from, or commercialize DoGoodery materials that fall within this Creative Commons License (DoGoodery reserves the right to create and distribute proprietary materials that may or may not be used or distributed by third parties) or works derived from them. The guidelines below are intended to help users determine whether or not their use of DoGoodery materials would be permitted by DG under the “non-commercial” restriction. Note that there are additional requirements (attribution and share alike) spelled out in our license.
- Commercialization is prohibited. Users may not directly sell or profit from DoGoodery materials or from works derived from DoGoodery education materials that fall within this creative commons license.
Example: A commercial education or training business may not offer courses based on DoGoodery education materials if educators or students pay a fee for those courses and the business intends to profit as a result.
- Determination of commercial vs. non-commercial purpose is based on the use, not the user. Materials may be used by individuals, institutions, governments, corporations, or other businesses, whether for-profit or non-profit so long as the use itself is not a commercialization of the materials or a use that is directly intended to generate sales or profit.
Example: A corporation may use DoGoodery education materials for professional development and training purposes.
- Incidental charges to recover reasonable reproduction costs may be permitted. Recovery of nominal actual costs for copying small amounts (under 1000 copies) of DoGoodery education content on paper, etc. is allowed for educational purposes so long as there is no profit motive and so long as the intended use of the copies is in compliance with all license terms. Educators & students must be informed that the materials are freely available on the DoGoodery Education Website and that their purchase of copied materials is optional.
Example: An institution in a remote area has limited internet access and limited network infrastructure on campus, and a professor offers to print copies of DoGoodery education materials relevant to her course. The professor may recover the costs of printing the copies.
If you have questions about acceptable use of DoGoodery education website materials, please contact us.
DMCAA Copyright Infringement Notification
DoGoodery complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). DoGoodery, prior to making any DoGoodery education materials publicly available, has reviewed all material extensively to determine the correct ownership of the material and obtain the appropriate licenses to make the material available on DoGoodery websites. DoGoodery will promptly remove any material that is determined to be infringing on the rights of others. If you believe that a portion of DoGoodery material infringes another’s copyright, contact us via email at email@example.com.
If you do not include an electronic signature with your claim, you may be asked to send or fax a follow-up copy with a signature. To file the notification, you must be either the copyright owner of the work or an individual authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Your notification must include:
- Identification of the copyrighted work, or, in the case of multiple works at the same location, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. You must include sufficient information, such as a specific URL or other specific identification, for us to locate the material.
- Information for us to be able to contact the claimant (e.g., email address, phone number).
