About Use of Metal Bulletin's Pricing Data
Metal Bulletin's assessed prices and indices are proprietary in nature and can only be legally accessed through a licence to Metal Bulletin. Through Metal Bulletin's pricing methodology, our price reporters apply judgement, creativity and originality to the price reporting process. This means that Metal Bulletin assessed prices and indices are original works protected by intellectual property rights and they also cannot be shared internally or externally without proper licensing in place. If you have any questions about your company's use of Metal Bulletin’s pricing data with respect to compliance, please consult with us by calling+44 207 779 8260.
Metal Bulletin’s Position on Copyright Enforcement
Metal Bulletin creates high value original content and pricing data. We invest in a highly skilled editorial staff as well as the technology and compliance infrastructure needed to produce the high-level intelligence that our subscribers find indispensable for their business operations. Most subscribers respect and understand that Metal Bulletin provides a valuable service to them and do their best to ensure compliant use of digital products by purchasing a licence that is appropriate for their needs. However, infringement of copyright in digital products is easy to commit and hard to detect and, despite clear and frequent warnings alerting subscribers to their obligations, clients may not have the appropriate licence to facilitate compliant use, or they may choose to ignore warnings in an effort to “save money” on subscription costs. We therefore take a firm position against any wilful, or otherwise, infringement of our copyright. This is especially so for instances of habitual, systematic, or repeated infringement intended to replace the need for additional licences within a company.
Metal Bulletin registers its copyrights with the Library of Congress and undertakes other steps to ensure it benefits from the full protection of U.S. copyright law, notably the statutory damages remedy. The premise of this remedy is that, because infringement of copyright in digital products is easy to commit and hard to detect, infringers who are caught must pay sufficient damages to provide a clear incentive for them and others to obey the law. If, as is the case with Metal Bulletin, copyrights are properly registered and fair warnings are given, a dispute can be taken to a jury. That jury will have broad discretion to award up to $150,000 for each issue of the Metal Bulletin Daily or other material that is infringed.
As a matter of policy all instances of continual or repeated infringement are referred to counsel and pursued with the intention of creating a deterrent to copyright infringement. Sharing a license creates a risk of significant financial penalties upon detection of non-compliance especially with the tracking capabilities now available to publishers of digital products.
Metal Bulletin’s goal is to match the needs of our clients with an appropriate licence. We encourage you to engage in conversations with our account management team to ensure compliance within your organization and protect your company from risk of penalties. Please call Jeremy Derenne at +44 20 7 779 8270 to initiate this discussion.
