PUBLICATION OF BOOKS AND OTHER "WORKS"
It is the policy of the Air Force Academy to honor copyrights owned by others and to obtain releases or assignments when the Academy hires contractors to generate copyrightable works. The Air Force Academy is a federal academic institution that is subject to certain federal laws and regulations that do not apply to civilian academic institutions. These federal laws and regulations restrict the actions of members of the Air Force Academy who are government employees. These restrictions arise in both the copyright and ethics arenas and will be fully addressed in this instruction.
