We would like to acknowledge that ALL material contained on this site, both written and visual, is copyrighted. We have striven to acknowledge all outside sources though we understand that that action does not circumvent standing copyright laws. We hope to fall under the example of fair use.
Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976 pertains to fair use and states: "Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified in that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright."
Additionally, we recognize that all material produced after 1989, according to the Berne copyright convention, which is followed by the USA, is copyrighted from the moment it is produced -- whether it says so or not. This includes all written, visual or Internet material -- even though it may have no commercial value. The owner/author has the exclusive right to control the use of his work.
We have reprinted each item or parts of items only to educate the public about events we did not get the opportunity to witness ourselves.

We do not wish to hinder anyone's career by this usage or to inhibit any profit that can be made from the material. If the owner/artist of any item on this site wishes that item to be removed or modified, please email us immediately and it will be done.
We have sought to secure permission to use many of the items contained on this site, but, though granted, it is understood that ownership of each item's copyright remains with the owner/artist. Visitors, please respect these copyrights, and this staff may continue to present these items in this medium.
