Rights Advisory

Content is identified as having "no known copyright restrictions" when Get Archive LLC is unaware of any copyright restrictions on its use. This may mean that: (1) a copyright existed at one time but was not renewed, or the copyright may have expired, or the owner may have intentionally placed the Content into the public domain; or (2) the Content was never eligible for copyright protection because it was created by an employee of the United States as part of his or her official duties, or (3) there are no copyright markings or other indications on the Content to indicate that it was copyrighted or otherwise restricted; or (4) Get Archive LLC records do not indicate any evidence of copyright restrictions. These facts do not necessarily mean that the Content is in the public domain, but rather indicate that no evidence has been found to show that copyright restrictions apply.

The media identified as "public domain" or 'public domain dedication" may be used freely for almost any purpose, in digital or printed format with following exceptions: (1) Identifiable people may not appear in a bad light or in a way that they may find offensive unless they give their consent.
