Special Copyright Messages

In some Industry Canada publications, brief acknowledgement messages are included on the copyright page. These messages usually relate to specific copyright issues.

Individual authors have the right to have their name associated with their work, whether or not they also hold the copyright. However, as a general rule, authors' names should not be mentioned on Industry Canada publications prepared by public servants in the course of their duties. When an author's name is to appear, the copyright page should carry a notice similar to the following example:

Prepared for Industry Canada by Professor John Smith, Scarborough College, University of Toronto.

Authored material that offers some conclusions or evaluations should bear the following note in a prominent place immediately below the author's name in a scholarly work, or on the title page of symposium papers or reports containing chapters written by named private sector persons:

Opinions and statements in the publication attributed to named authors do not necessarily reflect the policy of Industry Canada or the Government of Canada.

Co-publishing is an alternative method of disseminating information. In this case, the Department doesn't publish the document itself but gives a contribution to an association or other agency to do so, thus losing its claim to copyright. The Department's interests can be protected by requiring that the recipient organization include the following note in a prominent place in its publication, such as the copyright page:

Acknowledgement

Financial support from Industry Canada to conduct the research on which this report is based is gratefully acknowledged.

In such cases, it is important to ensure that readers do not construe any of the expressed conclusions or views as official government policy. This may be accomplished by printing the following disclaimer:

The views expressed in this report are not necessarily those of Industry Canada or of the Government of Canada.
