Beer Marketer’s Insights (BMI) claims copyright and contractual protection for all materials it publishes (the Content). This Subscriber Terms and Conditions User License Agreement (ULA) provides a limited license to a subscriber (You) to access the Content as described in detail below.

All of our publications are copyright protected and protected by intellectual property laws. It is illegal under the federal copyright law to retransmit or reproduce our newsletters or other publications in any manner, including for internal use - without our permission. Copyright violations will be prosecuted. Under the copyright law, receiving an electronic subscription gives you the same rights as those available with a print subscription. Just as you may not copy a print version for any reason, so, too, you may not make copies from your electronic version, even for “internal” use within your company, beyond the agreed upon site license distribution limits. Publications may not be placed on an intranet or otherwise shared or forwarded beyond the agreed upon number of individuals. This means that, for each subscription, you may only have one copy at any one time. If you forward a copy to someone else (even within your company), you must immediately erase the original copy from your computer. Similarly, you may not make your single an electronic subscription available on a network (without obtaining a network site license) because that would give individual copies to multiple network users. The sharing of login credentials by individual subscribers or the provision of subscription-only materials to those whose names are not specified in the account record of an individual subscription is considered a violation of these Terms of Use.

Discounts for multiple (group), or site licenses are available to those who wish to add users or an entire team to a BMI subscription or single-use product. For group or site license customers, Beer Marketer's Insights reserves the right to request an annual report of the distribution names and email addresses for each recipient. A multiple copy subscription agreement allows you and your company to have the agreed upon number of issues of the publication(s).  Site licenses, when arranged, allow a company to have up to the agreed upon number of copies at any one time for its US employees & fully owned US subsidiaries. Site licenses do not apply to independent contractors, subcontractors, freelancers, consultants, suppliers, clients or any other person who is not an employee.
