How does Zenark manage and handle Copyright Material?
In general, we believe that people who make information available on the Web expect that it will be available publicly and indexed for distribution, in a similar fashion to the way Zenark indexes information to make it available for its users.
Zenark's Electric Search product does not duplicate, distribute, publish, store, host or forward any copyrighted material.
In particular, Zenark does not photocopy or scan any newspaper information, store such information electronically, or distribute it to others.
The indexing process creates an entry for each known term within the article to be indexed and provides a corresponding link or pointer to the original article.
Put in simple terms, what this means is that unlike a traditional "press clippings" service, Zenark does not "clip" (or copy) the original article for redistribution. Instead, the Electric Search user is provided with a link which directs the user to the article at its original location.
The benefit to the user is that the article can be viewed in its original context together with any images, pictures or indeed links to other related articles.
The benefit to the copyright holder is that Electric Search users are directed to the copyright holder's site and provide the same registration information, or hold the same subscriptions as any other user of the site. An Electric Search user views the article in exactly the same way as any other visitor to the site and is exposed to any notices or advertisements which are displayed alongside the article.
Essentially what Electric Search does for publishers and copyright holders is to drive web traffic to their sites.

Zenark views the comprehensiveness of our search results as an extremely important priority. Our users depend on it, and it is what sets Zenark apart from its competitors.
We're committed to providing complete and unbiased search results for our users; therefore, we cannot participate in the practice of censorship. We stop indexing pages of a web site or publication only at the request of the copyright holder or their authorised agent, or as required by law. This policy is necessary to ensure that pages aren't inappropriately removed from Zenark's monitoring index.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide Zenark's Copyright Agent with the following information:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
- a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
- a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Zenark site, with enough detail that we may find it on the web site;
- your address, telephone number, and email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;
- a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner's behalf.
