The copyright laws regarding the Internet are still being formulated and determined by the courts. We are very careful about asking permission before posting anything that we did not create, or that is not in the public domain. If you find something that is not properly credited, it is undoubtedly an oversight that we will happily correct. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you should provide us with the information required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. 512.

We ask that users of the Jewish Virtual Library exercise similar respect for the intellectual property rights of others and credit AICE or the original source for any material that you take from the Jewish Virtual Library for use in either a printed or electronic form. Generally, unless an entry specifically lists a source at the bottom of the page the copyright belongs to AICE.

We ask that any reprinted material carry the following tagline with the appropriate link back to original page on the Jewish Virtual Library:

Copyright American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise - Reprinted with permission.

If you simply wish to link to our site, no permission is required and we encourage webmasters to create these links. If requested, we are happy to reciprocate and add links to our site given that such requests are only noncommercial in nature that are determined to be useful and relevant to the mission of the Jewish Virtual Library.

Visitors should be aware that we are often given permission to use material published by other sources, but this does not mean it may reprinted elsewhere without permission. Therefore, we urge users to request permission from the original sources of any material they plan to use.
