COBIT 5 Licensing Opportunities (102K)
Licensing and Use of COBIT 5
With the release of COBIT® 5, ISACA has changed and expanded its licensing program to account for a variety of COBIT uses. While each individual purchasing a COBIT 5 Family product is still allowed to use it for his/her own personal purposes, providing copies to others, or to otherwise use COBIT 5 except as permitted by ISACA or detailed in the ISACA guidelines is not permitted.
COBIT 5 licensing is required for training; consulting; company-wide internal and commercial uses. The path to licensure is shaped by ISACA’s COBIT 5 content/use licensing guidelines. Pursuant Pursuant to ISACA’s guidelines, some uses require a lawfully obtained copy or permission from ISACA, other more substantive uses will require a license from ISACA.
Should you want to learn more about the value of COBIT 5 or have any questions regarding licensure or use, please contact the Intellectual Property Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each individual purchasing a COBIT 5 publication is allowed to use it for his/her own personal purposes. This includes sharing it with someone else or later reselling it. A book purchase or download does not provide license to reproduce, reprint or display any COBIT 5 books.
Where multiple individuals from the same corporation require a copy, or access to COBIT 5 books, multiple copies can be obtained at a discount.
