I'm applying for grant money: https://genesis.re/wiki#CaaS:_Civilisation_as_a_Service
Some time ago I've received a brochure from a vendor that is copyrighted material.
This document, all text and images used within it as well as the company logo is copyright BLAH BLAH BLAH LTD. 2018
A copyright is subject to limitations based on public interest considerations, such as the fair use doctrine in the United States.
Puzzled with a dilemma
When applying for grant money, it is helpful to evidence there is a vendor that has the experience and can deliver
It is copyrighted material. Cannot use their product brochure.
Or maybe I can? There is an assumption that if a vendor shares their product brochure, it is totally logical and acceptable to share it widely - after all they want to have more clients.
Or maybe not? Each brochure is different, customized, I publish the old one from 2018, it will make their business mode difficult and I will be responsible for their losses.
For the purpose of this question assume 🇬🇧UK jurisdiction.
