Intellectual Property

  Intellectual Property
A new position in advertising was created for Vicki Talley, the niece of Jabil’s CEO. Talley was a senior at Southeast University, majoring in marketing. Talley was in charge of revitalizing the company’s website. Talley copied images from various websites and pasted them into Jabil’s site.  Delores Banks was a full time law student who worked as an intern for Jabil. After reviewing the new website, Banks explained to Talley that using images and text without permission violates intellectual property laws. Talley explained that she could use the images because everything on the Internet is free for people to use. Talley also suggested that Banks needed to read about the fair use doctrine that was covered in her business law class.
