Why do I have to assign copyright to Ivey Publishing?
Copyright is a complex area requiring expertise in the law, publishing, electronic controls and the legal systems throughout the world. By having a standardized copyright for all registered cases, Ivey Publishing can more easily address issues in these areas. In particular, Ivey Publishing must have the unrestricted ability to deal with copyright issues in order to deal expeditiously and effectively with government bodies, textbook publishers, customers and possible copyright violations.
Can I register a case with a joint copyright?
Due to complex legal issues, Ivey Publishing will not accept cases with joint copyright.
The case was published previously in a journal or a textbook; will this prevent me from registering the case?
I granted another company permission to distribute the case; will this prevent me from publishing the case with Ivey Publishing?
Yes, unless the existing distributor agrees to discontinue distributing the case or enters into a special arrangement with Ivey Publishing. Ivey Publishing will be glad to advise you.
I want to promote usage of the case; will you help?
Absolutely – Ivey Publishing would be pleased to send a watermarked copy of the case to educators; all Ivey Publishing needs is a list of email addresses from you.
What do I need to send you to have my case considered?
An electronic copy of the case and the related teaching note is required, together with the original artwork of any embedded graphic images. Ivey Publishing will ultimately need a Product Information Form (including an abstract of the case), releases for any copyrighted materials used in the case, a Consent to Use Business Case form and a legal agreement assigning copyright to Ivey. These forms will be sent to you after the case and teaching note have been reviewed and accepted by the appropriate Ivey Publishing representative.
