The effects of piracy
IEEE is dedicated to keeping its members and authors safe from the effects of piracy. Piracy of IEEE intellectual property hurts not only IEEE as an organization, but also IEEE members, subscribers, and authors.
The effects of piracy are widespread. However, they may have some direct consequences on IEEE, IEEE members, and IEEE authors. For example:
- Pirated content may be unreliable; IEEE content is the version of record.
- Unauthorized sharing of content may be a violation of the IEEE Code of Ethics and/or a violation of copyright law.
- The reproduction and distribution of infringing copies of IEEE intellectual property can impact the financial stability of IEEE.
For these reasons, IEEE monitors various forms of intellectual property misuse. For example, IEEE staff members track usage reporting and employ the use of real-time monitoring tools to detect excessive usage or sharing of IEEE accounts. When cases of possible misuse surface, the individual is notified and is expected to take measures to ensure IEEE content is being protected. In cases of extreme misuse, access may be suspended or terminated.
Should you become aware of any unauthorized use of IEEE intellectual property, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
