Due to the Copyright Act 1968, advertisers are advised that the inclusion in ads of material (photographs, artist’s illustrations, or text) taken from any article published in a newspaper, magazine, periodical or similar publication is strictly prohibited without the written consent of the owner of the copyright.
Application for the use of published material from Business News should be made to the publisher.
It is the advertiser’s responsibility to ensure that any material used in an ad:
(a) is authorised for publication by the owner of the copyright to prevent the possibility of legal action being taken against the advertiser for any breach of Copyright Acts;
(b) does not infringe any legal, equitable or statutory interest of:
(i) any living person(s) depicted in the material; or
(ii) the owner of any legal, equitable or statutory interest in respect of subjects or items depicted, described or referred to in the material.
NOTE: The advertiser must obtain written authority for the publication of the material from that living person or the person or the owner of the interest.
