Any access to the Manual by Assignees whose assignment is not current or fully paid for is strictly prohibited. Granting of access to the Manual and the assignment of a password for such access terminates immediately upon termination of assignment regardless of the circumstances of the termination.
Regardless of whether password access to the Manual is granted to you under Membership or Non-Membership Policies, any unauthorized copying or distribution (downloading, uploading, file serving, file sharing, sharing of downloaded copies, or other similar activities) of MPELRA Manual materials is strictly prohibited and will be deemed an infringement on MPELRA’s copyrights in violation of the U.S. Copyright Act.
Similarly, sharing or other distribution of passwords to others who have not been granted password access under MPELRA Policies is strictly prohibited and will be deemed an infringement of MPERLA’s copyrights as well as theft of MPELRA property.
