Please visit the State of Alaska ADA Compliance program's Accessiblity Statement
Please Note: For brevity, the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles will be referred to simply as "DMV" in the following text.
Subject to fair use, such as limited copying for purposes of research or critique, the unauthorized copying and posting of material contained within a division publication or web page to a non-DMV hard publication, web page or other electronic publication constitutes copyright infringement. A person seeking to copy material from a division web page or hard publication to a non-DMV web page or publication must first obtain permission from the division. Downloading of web materials for uses allowed under fair use, such as making a paper copy for subsequent reading is permitted without division authorization and approval, but republication is prohibited.
The DMV's authority to claim copyright protection for its original works of authorship derives from (Alaska Statutes) AS 16.05.050(2), 16.05.050(8), and AS 44.99.400. Copyright protection begins automatically from the moment the work is created in fixed form and begins without any formality, process, or application. In keeping with changes in copyright law in March 1989, the standard copyright notice (e.g., " 1999 Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles") is not required to establish copyright, nevertheless, we have attempted to include a copyright notice on all of the division's web pages to inform users of DMV's copyright. Users of this website should not assume that pages, materials, or graphics found on this website without any copyright notice are unprotected and free to copy, as this may not be the case.
As an alternative to reposting our materials on other web sites we encourage the use of one or more of the following web techniques:
- Sites can link to our own pages containing those materials or information,
- Create coding such that a new browser window will open displaying our appropriate web page (A HREF=" " . . . target="_blank" or target="_new"), or
- write to us and request that specific data or information that is currently not posted to our site be added to our site so links can be established to our original material on our site
For materials that we are unable to post immediately (for your site to link to), you may inquire about licensing those materials for posting to your own web site.
The use of "frames" to reproduce/display our web pages/site on an external website is prohibited.
When requesting permission to copy, republish, or reprint material from DMV, prepare a letter of request that includes the following:
- explain the nature of the request (i.e., your intended use and its duration), and
- include pertinent source information (e.g., year, volume, number, edition, pages or portions of a page, URL of the web page, and/or nature of the information or data) that clearly identifies the material
Review of your request may take some time. If you receive no immediate response, do not assume permission has or would have been granted. Contact DMV again and request a follow-up to your initial inquiry.
Although DMV may grant license(s) to use any of its copyrighted materials, the department also reserves the right to revoke such authorization at any time, and use of our materials shall be discontinued immediately upon written notice from this department.
Documents or materials specified above may not include the design or layout of this web site. Elements of this web site are protected by trade dress and other laws and may not be copied or imitated in whole or in part. No logo, graphic, sound, or image from DMV's web site may be copied, republished/reposted, or retransmitted unless expressly permitted by DMV.
Alteration or Manipulation of Distributed Electronic Documents and Forms Documents distributed in an electronic manner (e.g., Adobe Acrobat documents .pdf; PostScript files .eps, .ps, .prn; word processing documents .doc, .wp, .rtf, .txt; spreadsheet documents .xls, .csv; or hypertext markup language .htm, .html; etc.) are not to be altered or manipulated (largely or in part) and then republished or reposted through any medium without division approval. Non-approved alteration of our original materials beyond fair use under the Copyright Act and reposting or duplication of our electronic documents or files is expressly prohibited.
