3. Copyright

All archival material on www.cfnonline.se is protected by national and international copyright law. The ultimate right to the presented material is twofold:

a) The owner of the archives as items may be an archival institution, such as the CBHS, or a company, organization or person who keeps historical archives at an institution or merely lends digital copies to the site for research use only. The name of the owner is available in the archive databases as “Owner”. The right to private property applies not only to material in the original archival form but also to digital copies of the original documents. The use of archival material outside this website must be approved by the CBHS. If necessary, the CBHS will uphold contacts with the owners of the archives.

b) The true copyright holder of the individual document. This is usually the creator in person, for example, a photographer, an artist, a director, a scriptwriter or an author. When known, the CBHS provides information about the original copyright holder of a document (for example, a photo, drawing or film). The CBHS takes no responsibility for making contact with the copyright holder however.

Copyright law differs from country to country, though there is an internationally accepted core. This core includes exclusive copyright for the original creator in person, if known, of a document, unless there is a contract or deal stating otherwise.

The archives stored in Sweden with Swedish owners are subject to Swedish copyright law: Lagen (1960:729) om upphovsrätt till litterära och konstnärliga verk. According to this law, the original copyright owner always retains his or her right to have his or her name mentioned together with the work. Swedish copyright law applies for a certain period, normally up to 70 years after the death of the original copyright owner, after which the use falls under what is known as “public property”.
