Visual presentations - delivered via PowerPoint or other technologies - and handouts are essential components to quality continuing medical education. It is not uncommon for faculty members preparing such presentations and materials for use in activities sponsored by an organization such as the AAAAI to include therein limited materials copyrighted by another party.

Although limited use of limited portions of copyrighted materials of others may be permissible under applicable copyright law, it is the policy of the AAAAI to exercise the utmost effort to respect the proprietary rights of authors and other creators of medical education works in AAAAI-sponsored activities.

Attached below are 3 documents outlining the AAAAI policies for use of copyrighted materials. If you have specific questions about incorporating outside materials into a AAAAI-sponsored activity, please contact the education staff at
