Copyright Caveats by CHRS:
Somebody, under U.S. law, viz: Title 17, U.S. Code, may have once held a copyright, and may still, with respect to one or another of the documents and the like that we show on this website, including text, photographs, and other materials such as drawings. Releases may or may not have ever been granted, for one or another purpose. All original contemporary work on this website, such as interpretive text and archivists’ notes, is protected by current copyright law. Copyright counsel would likely opine that reproductions or copies of original contemporary work on this website, such as text, can be made if and only if they are used for “private study, scholarship, or research.” Copyright counsel might also opine that with respect to the older and historical documents that we display, that it is the user’s responsibility to determine any copyright constraints (there may well be none, for various reasons), and to obtain all necessary permissions (a release) prior to the reproduction, publication, or other use of any portion of these materials, other than as noted above, if obtaining such a release is even possible. Copyright counsel might also opine that if someone uses some of this material beyond “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. As far as we are concerned, however, any historical and non-commercial use of anything on this website is “fair use” and we have no objection if and only if it is properly attributed to CHRS and its source, and the integrity of the text, etc. is maintained, both of which are requirements of the Geneva Convention. We, the California Historical Radio Society and its directors, and volunteer staff, etc., have no control over the ultimate use of any copied archive or other material; we assume no responsibility with respect thereto, and we will contest any attempt to impose any liability therefor.
