Making copies from individual CultureGrams reports without purchasing copy privileges is a violation of copyright. A copy privileges license may be bought on our online store. The price varies according to the quantity of copies you wish to make.

Customers who purchase individual PDF downloads of CultureGrams reports and wish to e-mail those reports to others must also purchase a copy privileges license that covers the number of people to whom they e-mail the report.
