Rights & Reproduction Request
Rights and reproductions refer to the ownership of certain intellectual property rights of Moab Museum’s collections. Most commonly, this refers to copyright. Many parts of Moab Museum’s holdings are protected by copyright, that is, a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (17 U.S.C.), to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including, literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other intellectual works. Section 106 of the 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive rights to reproduction, adaptation, distribution, performance, and display.
Use of assets such as images, text, or digital files from Moab Museum collections for research, exhibit, publication, programming, and publicity purposes is a common practice and when used appropriately such materials serve to share Museum collections more widely.
