Copyright Compliance Agreement

All Econometrics Laboratory (EML) users must comply with copyright law. The contents of all accounts (including all files that are owned or created by the user regardless of location) administred by the EML are subject to copyright law.

The copyright law (Title 17, United States Code) governs the circumstances under which computer files may be copied. All "original works of authorship" that are produced or distributed are covered by copyright law. An individual cannot store or distribute (make available), in part or in whole, any item that is protected by copyright law without the written permission of the copyright owner. Certain exceptions are permitted under the Fair Use Doctrine (Section 107 of the copyright law).

When you acquire an EML user account or submit contributions to the ELSA software archive, you are agreeing to operate the EML account and to utilize the archive in compliance with all copyright laws, and in addition, you are agreeing to assume full financial responsibility for any infringement that may result from your failure to do so.
