Copyright Guidelines -- Original Web Pages
Original web pages created by an SUS University for a PALMM project should carry a copyright statement at the bottom of the page:

(c) Copyright [year], [Name of University]
(c) Copyright 2000, University of South Florida
  Copyright Guidelines -- Public Domain
For retrospective digitization, if the source materials are in the public domain, copyright cannot be claimed in the digital reproductions, and no restrictions on use are enforceable.

Do not put a statement of copyright in the bibliographic record or in the MXF. However, you may put a version statement in the MXF Version Statement field. Electronic version created [date], State University System of Florida.

Copyright Guidelines -- Materials Under Copyright
For retrospective digitization, if the source materials are under copyright, permission from the rightsholder must be obtained to digitize the materials and make them available on the web. Copyright remains with the original rightsholder unless it is assigned or otherwise transferred to the individual University, which in general, the rightsholder will not do. The copyright holder may give an individual University a license to digitize the material for the web and to place appropriate conditions in the license agreement. Restrictions may be placed upon use of these materials so long as these do not negate Fair Use. The University should obtain the written permission of the copyright holder, including an agreed upon statement of copyright and permissions for display with the digitized materials.

 Treatment of copyrighted materials in PALMM projects
If the source document is under copyright and digitized with permission:

Print out the statement of copyright and permissions that was negotiated with the rightsholder. Digitize this, and include it as the first page of the digitized document.

In the Entity level of the MXF, fill in hte Copyright field with a note indicating the material was digitized with permission of the copyright holder.

Include a Div for the digitized statement, using the value "permission" for the Type of Part.

Edit the bibliographic record: include a 540 note as specified in the CAGER Guidelines with the text of the specific copyright permission statement.
