Internet Posting Guidelines

Augsburg Fortress has developed basic guidelines for the online posting of our copyrighted materials. These guidelines are posted here in order to give customers a general idea of our current Internet posting policies. The posting of these guidelines does not mean that customers do not need to contact Augsburg Fortress to acquire permission to post material online, nor does it mean that all requests for permission will be approved. Every time a customer wishes to post copyrighted material online, the customer should contact the copyright holder.




Password-Protected Sites
  • Prices for posting material on password protected sites are the same as for course pack copies: [per page price] X [# of pages] X [# of people with access]
  • Time limit still applies. The time limit can vary depending on the need of the customer, but will generally be for one academic term.


Non-Password-Protected Sites — Fair Use:
  • Book excerpts may be posted online without payment of fee if they are 500 words or less AND if they are a total number of words equaling no more than 10% of the work AND no more than 10% of a “stand-alone” portion of the work.
  • The posting must contain a copyright notice, including: title, author, publisher, and copyright year.
  • The copyright notice must contain a link to our website: www.augsburgfortress.org
  • Content may be posted for a maximum of six months. The permission may be renewed, by mutual consent, for subsequent 6-month periods.
Non-Password-Protected Sites — Exceed Fair Use:
  • Permission may be granted to post book excerpts up to a maximum of 2,500 words.
  • Fees are based on the amount of material being used and the distribution of that material.
  • The posting must contain a copyright notice, including: title, author, publisher, and copyright year.
  • The copyright notice must contain a link to our website: www.augsburgfortress.org
  • Content may be posted for a maximum of six months. The permission may be renewed, by mutual consent, for subsequent 6-month periods.
