Oftentimes, copyright is addressed in the workplace only after a blatant infringement is discovered or a cease-and-desist letter is received. Then, too, some workplaces may feel that they are immune to copyright issues due to their educational nature; while private organizations, businesses, and industry may feel that the term "fair use" will never apply to them. In reality, all organizations need to be aware of copyright law and guidelines and how these fit into their groups' needs and concerns. This article addresses the steps that, if practiced, will help to create and safeguard a copyright-compliant organization. Such steps include administration support, copyright training for all members of the organization, and the creation of copyright "experts" in the workplace.
