On this site, digital copies of resources are made accessible for research for one of the following reasons:
Please note, some materials may only be accessible on-site due to restrictions.
- they are in the public domain;
- the rights are owned by The Frick Collection;
- we make them accessible under an exception or limitation to U.S. copyright law, such as 17 U.S.C 107 and 17 U.S.C. 108(h);
- we have permission to make them accessible;
- or, there are no known restrictions on use.
The Frick Collection adheres to U.S. Copyright Law and respects the copyright and intellectual property rights held by rights holders. Therefore, efforts have been made to accurately determine the rights status of the digital resources found on this
The copyright status of each resource is determined according to U.S. Copyright Law and in some cases the country of origin or publication if available. Rights status statements have been established with the guidance of the Europeana-DPLA white paper,
“Recommendations for Standardized International Rights Statements” found at http://rightsstatements.org/. Resources in copyright are labeled In Copyright. Resources that are in the public domain based on U.S. Copyright Law are labeled No U.S. Copyright.
When a conclusive determination cannot be made according to U.S. Copyright law, but no copyright or related rights are known to exist, resources are labeled No Known U.S. Copyright. Resources published before 1790 and therefore in the public domain
globally are labeled Public Domain. When the copyright determination remains inconclusive or unknown, resources are labeled Copyright Not Evaluated.
Terms and Conditions
Resources labeled Public Domain may be used and copied for all purposes. Resources labeled No U.S. Copyright may be used according to U.S. Copyright Law and may have restrictions if copied outside of the United States. Resources labeled In Copyright,
No Known U.S. Copyright, or Copyright Not Evaluated may have copy and use restrictions beyond The Frick Collection’s copy and use. Where fair use applies, the resources may be copied and used as defined in the U.S. Copyright Law. If you wish to use
