COPYRIGHT POLICY - FAIR USE GUIDELINES


To demonstrate what Museums and their Websites have to offer, I quoted information and images from the Websites presented. Museum logos on my Website all function as links to the original Museum Websites and do not imply the Museum has formally approved the content of the RODIN-WEB and/or the use of materials from their Websites.

Instead, I have made sure that the RODIN-WEB pages comply with the Fair Use guidelines as indicated on the MoMA and other Museum Websites (see below).

The copyright of these imported contents remains with the original proprietors. Requests to reproduce these contents should be directed to the original copyright holders; use of such contents should comply with their guidelines.

Considerable amounts of labour and money were invested to do academic research and to design this Website. As an as an unique collection and organization of information, it is my intellectual property and protected by copyright. Linking to this Website and quotation are allowed and encouraged within the limits of Fair Use and provided the URL www.RODIN-WEB.org is quoted. Copying my link collection or substantial parts thereof  into other link collections or web catalogs, commercially managed or not, is not allowed without my prior written permission.
