JPMorgan Chase & Co. blocked employees from using the Financial Times website over concerns some may have breached copyright rules by copying and pasting its content, according to people familiar with the matter.

JPMorgan prevented access to the newspaper’s site because it didn’t want the FT to get the impression that it was encouraging copyright abuse on an institutional scale, according to the people, who asked not to be identified discussing a private matter.
