Copyright and Fair Use Statement
|Return to Home Page
The question of copyright is an issue, which needs to be considered by all sites such as this one, which display images and text most of which are not the product of the domain registrant. The Internet and websites like this do not change copyright laws but only present a further challenge to their application and interpretation in this new media.
As registrant of this site I assume all responsibility for what is displayed here. The copyright notice appearing
in some pages on this site is merely an assignment of rights that I may in the
future make to the
City of Princeton for the pages of this site and in no way implies or assigns liability for their content. It is my intent to take responsibility but
may at some future date give current and all future rights to these pages to the
City of Princeton.
Summarized here is my understanding and approach in use of images and text on this site.
This site is first of all for education and research only. With this premise, I have excerpted or copied small portions of text or images from many other sources and placed them on this site as "fair use" of these items. Where it has been possible, credit is given for the source of these items or links to their sites have been made. In some cases, as a further courtesy, permission has been requested for use of the item. Where large portions of an original work still under copyright are used, permission of the author has been obtained.
Many of the texts and images used in the local and family history portion of this site are in the public domain. My understanding is that if the item is over 100 years old and the author has been dead for 70 years then it is in the public domain.
There are many websites devoted to copyright issues but here is one of them if you wish further information on the subject.
