I am looking for the text of the copyright 'rules' for AS9100

#1
I am looking for the text of the copyright 'rules' for the AS9100 standard (Rev C if different).

Can someone link in the copyright rules please?

Thank you,

I was hoping for something a bit more 'you can do this, you cannot do that' phrasing. That is the wording on my standard. I thought I had read that the copy right is to a single person and cannot be shared. I read the copy right as 'cannot be shared between people' but others are reading it differently.

It seems very straightforward, maybe I'm not seeing your concern

1. No part of this publication may be reproduced; This means you can't make copies.

2. ...stored in a retrieval system; This means you can't put it in an electronic library, server or similar location.

3. ...or transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without the prior written permission of SAE; This means you can't send it to anyone, using any method, unless you have proof that you've been given permission (which you won't get).

Where I work, we need eight copies for various stakeholders. Therefore we buy eight copies.

To answer your concerns, the standard is issued to a named person, and cannot be shared. You've stated that you thought you had read that the copyright is to a single person and cannot be shared - that's exactly what 'cannot be shared between people' means.

At my work we obtain most of our industry specs (ASTM, SAE, etc) second hand thru a liscence from an IHS portal (I shudder at the price); any time we download one it is permanently imprinted on the bottom on who (specific name) it is authorized to. Depending on the specific organization it is from, there are sometimes additional electronic limitations if it can be saved or printed it on a computer.

After posting, I found the text I was looking for: "Licensed to Michael Murphy. ANSI store order #XXXXXXXXXXX. Downloaded xx/xx/xxxx 12:31 PM. Single user license only. Copying and networking prohibited."

I was having a disagreement with an individual who said we bought the standard and it can be shared if we put it in a folder. I was saying we could not. I was saying it was licensed to a specific individual (me) and by the copyright rules, I was the only one who can use it. It was becoming a 'heated' discussion and I could not find my copy that had the text. I had not noticed, but at the time the printer I used to print cut off the bottom portion of the text. It only affected the first and second page so I never noticed it (who reads the first page).

What's the difference between having a paper library with one copy that anyone can sign out and read, versus having the document on a server so the same people can open a document and read it?:confused:

So now armed with this knowledge, did you accept his apology?:agree:

I have a similar dilemma where our Quality Manager has recently purchased a copy of AS9100(D) and was about to attach it to an email and send across to me. I said he better read the "small print" one more time ... and check his budget.
