Copyright Information

University of Oregon Libraries Special Collections and University Archives owns the digital reproductions it offers for purchase. However, in many instances, the Library does not necessarily own copyright of the photograph, manuscript, or underlying object or work of art itself, which may be owned by a separate individual, artist, artist’s estate, or other person or entity. The Library endeavors to provide information that it possesses about the copyright status for such works; however, the Library offers no guarantee that all pertinent information is provided or that the information is correct in each circumstance.

Therefore, it is the sole responsibility of the person seeking permission from the Library to determine whether any additional permission, such as copyright clearance, is necessary and, if so, for obtaining the required permission and related written documentation. The Library is not responsible for any costs, claims, liabilities, or damages incurred as a result of any violation of copyright, trademark, privacy, or publicity rights, or other claims arising from use of its images.
