As a general rule, written permission must be obtained from the Business Ethics Resource Center (BERC) in order to re-use any copyrighted material. Copyrighted material can include figures, illustrations, charts, tables, photographs, and text excerpts. Re-use of any borrowed material must be properly acknowledged, even if it is determined that written permission is not necessary.

BERC publishes not only subscription content but also open access content available under a user license that determines how readers can re-use the content. We recommend readers check the license details at the bottom of each copyrighted material.
