Photo Usage and Publication Fees
Fees are granted for one-time, non-exclusive use and for the number of copies specified in the Permission to Use and/or Publish Form. Any subsequent printings, new editions (new ISBN numbers) and/or different versions such as paperback releases of a formerly hard cover title require new permission and additional fees. All fees listed below are for each image used in each individual publication. “One time” use means for each media used and/or published. Therefore a published book, which bears an image from the Society’s collections with a companion CD-ROM, that also bears an illustration of the same items or object constitutes two uses. A video documentary shown on television, which is then sold as a DVD, both of which bear an image used from the collections of the Cumberland County Historical Society constitutes two usages.
The staff of the CCHS reserves the right for any reason to deny, limit or restrict any reproduction request. The appropriate staff member of the CCHS will provide a reason for the denial, limitation or restriction in writing to the requestor. Possible reasons for modifications or refusal of reproduction work could include, the fragile condition of the artifact, photograph, or other materials, or intellectual, privacy or copyright issues.
Patrons agree not to publish, reproduce, display or distribute any reproduction of material or objects provided to them by the Cumberland County Historical Society, without securing the appropriate permission and the payment of usage/publication fees. Violations of any portion of this policy by a patron could result in the loss of research privileges and/or legal action.
Members of the Cumberland County Historical Society shall receive a 10% discount off the fees listed below. Non-profit entities shall pay 50% of the commercial fee rate.
