This is an official Army website, and is provided as a public service by the U.S. Army Office of the Provost Marshal General. Information presented on this site not identified as protected by copyright is considered public information and may be distributed or copied. Use of appropriate byline/photo/image credits is requested for any original content. Photographs, videos and music identified as copyrighted material require permission for use and remain the property of the United States Army or copyright owner and may not be reproduced except by permission.

It is Department of the Army policy to recognize the rights of copyright owners (for example, photo journalists or embedded media) consistent with the Army's mission and worldwide commitments. Copyrighted works will not be reproduced or distributed outside of the Army without the written or electronically conveyed permission of the copyright owner.

In the event a copyright owner grants the Army written or electronically conveyed permission to use copyrighted material for internal command information or morale and welfare purposes, commanders or heads of Army activities will take care to assure that such permission is not abused by improper use of the material.

In addition, any use of copyrighted material, for which permission has been obtained, will carry attribution for the source of the material. Army Public Affairs will continue to make every effort to reinforce this policy through public affairs channels and to ensure widest dissemination of these guidelines around the Army, and at every level of command.

Copyrighted material in the Army's possession should be safeguarded from accidental unauthorized release.

Copyright issues are under the purview of the Office of the Judge Advocate General and are covered in Army Regulation 27-60, Intellectual Property.

Army Regulation 25-1 prohibits the posting of documents or information protected by a copyright on Army websites without the permission of the copyright holder.

Licensed use. A license is a contract which identifies the terms under which we can use a copyrighted work (e.g., can use my painting on the Army website for a period of 6 months, but not for any other purposes). There is no required format for a license and different licenses will vary greatly in their terms. At a minimum, the organization which receives the license should file a record copy. This will vary based on the scope of the license and intended use of the copyrighted work. For example, Office of Chief of Public Affairs might keep track of any licenses which allow use of a copyrighted work on the Army website, but a battalion might keep track of a license to use a copyrighted work in a locally distributed document.
