C. Using Apple and third-party copyrighted material
Unauthorized duplication of copyrighted computer software and other copyrighted materials violates the law and is contrary to Apples standards of conduct. Apple will not tolerate the making or use of unauthorized copies under any circumstances and will comply with the law and all license or purchase terms regulating the use of any software and other copyrighted materials we acquire or use.
Apple employees sometimes need to use or create Apple copyrighted material to perform their jobs or to prepare Apple products and promotional materials. Whenever Apple employees, temporary agency employees, or contractors create an original work of authorship that is fixed in any tangible form, the creator of the work must place Apples copyright notice on the work and submit a copyright disclosure form to the Apple Law Department.
All Apple employees, temporary agency employees, and contractors must ensure that they use only authorized copies of copyrighted materials while performing their jobs. Before an Apple employee, temporary agency employee, or contractor uses any third-party material, an appropriate license must be obtained. It is against Apple policy for any Apple employee, temporary agency employee, or contractor to copy, digitize, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, or distribute any part of a copyrighted work without first obtaining written permission from the copyright owner. It is also against Apple policy to use Apple facilities or equipment to make or distribute unauthorized copies of copyrighted works. This policy applies whether the copies are intended for personal use, internal use at Apple, or public distribution.
