COPYRIGHT, PUBLIC DOMAIN and INFRINGEMENT Agreement
In connection with submitting to the U.S. Geological Survey the text, image(s), audios, videos, and/or
audio-videos identified in the specified list, I, the provider, aver that they were either created in my
capacity as a Federal Government employee and are therefore in the U.S. public domain or they were
created by me alone in my private capacity and automatically qualify for a U.S. copyright. If a U.S.
copyright presently applies to any item listed above, I agree to irrevocably dedicate that or those
copyrights to the public domain.
As a result, the USGS, or anyone else, may freely publish, reproduce, use and/or distribute these
creations in any media at no cost and without temporal or geographic restriction. If the USGS uses any
of these creations in its products or services, it agrees to credit the provider.
I, the provider, understand that if the foregoing representations concerning copyright ownership are
determined to be incorrect or false, resulting in the USGS or the U.S. Government being sued for
copyright infringement, I agree to indemnify the USGS and/or the U.S. Government for any resulting
out-of-pocket expenses arising from defending and/or settling such litigation.
