Are there limits on copying SAFe content?

Yes. Copyright law and the Doctrine of Fair Use limit the amount of SAFe content
that others can reproduce, and it requires that copied content be followed by “© Scaled
Agile, Inc.”  If you seek to use what could be considered a substantial amount of
copyright materials (text and/or graphics), check with us first by submitting a permission
request form

What kind of conditions do I have to follow if I am granted permission to use SAFe content?

A permission grant typically requires that you meet the following conditions:

  • SAFe content may not be used to create other training or services, or anything that competes with a Scaled Agile, Inc. offering or service. SAFe content, graphics, and trademarks may be used only in connection with Scaled Agile’s SAFe services, training, and courses.
  • SAFe graphics may not be modified, including the template, format, font, color, graphics, and text.

Can I use SAFe content contained in courseware and workbooks?

No, in addition to being protected by copyright law, all courseware is governed by a legal license agreement that is very restrictive about how the courseware can be used. SAFe courseware may be used only according to the terms of that license agreement in the delivery of a Scaled Agile, Inc. SAFe course.
