Digital technology allows unprecedented access to information (Armstrong, 2005). This study examines selected literature published between 1990 and 2010 to provide communications professionals working in the United States with a 14-point guide to help frame, build, and implement a copyright compliance policy related to the use of digital graphic elements including photos, maps, and pictographs. Focus is on the use of a policy to reduce financial liability as part of a larger risk management program.
