Plagiarism.

If you copy words, images, or other materials from our site and submit them as your own in homework assignments or scholarly papers, or use such materials without clearly acknowledging the appropriate source, then you have plagiarized -- and may face disciplinary sanctions from your school.

Permission requests.

Any use, whether in print or electronic format, beyond that specified in the fair use guidelines issued by the U.S. Copyright Office, must have explicit permission and/or licensing from the ipl2 Consortium. All permission requests must be made prior to use. If your request is not covered in the guidelines that follow and if you have any question as to whether your use is fair use, you should contact the ipl2 Consortium for additional information and guidance at the address given below in the section "How to Request Copyright Permission."

Credit and copyright notice.

A statement such as the following must appear with all material used from the ipl2 Consortium publications: "Reproduced with permission from the ipl2 Consortium, copyright [year] by the ipl2 Consortium. All rights reserved."

Accompanying that statement of acknowledgement, please clearly display the ipl2 .org domain name (http://www.ipl.org), and, on web pages, please link to it. The statement and link may be combined: for example, "Reproduced with permission from the ipl2 Consortium, copyright [year] by the ipl2 Consortium (http://www.ipl.org). All rights reserved."

Exclusions.

Permission does not automatically extend to any items identified as reprinted by permission of other publishers and copyright holders. Such items must be excluded from any print or electronic reproduction of the material unless separate permissions are obtained. It will be the responsibility of the user to identify such materials and obtain the permissions.

Links and Framing.

Links may be made to pages as long as it is clear that this content belongs to the ipl2 Consortium and the URLs associated with those linked pages are displayed. Similarly, the ipl2 Consortium content may not be framed unless it is made clear that the content is hosted by the ipl2 Consortium and the URLs of the framed the ipl2 Consortium pages are displayed.

Materials reproduced for distance learning and correspondence courses are subject to the same restrictions as other permission requests.

Individual web pages may be reproduced for distribution to teachers or parents in a school or district.
