Association for destroyed art museum
Association for destroyed art museum (ADAM) applies the legislation of ETA and Finland in all matters concerning copyrights.
The following statements apply to all the material published and created in the web-pages of the association as well as in other productions:
1) copyrights to the technical production of the association’s web pages (www.adam.fi and associated pages) are owned by www.rikasmediavirta.fi. The pages are based on open source code by Joomla. Joomla itself has been yielded to public use with the GPL-license (GNU General Public License, Version 3 ) and the rights of Joomla are looked after by Open Source Matters, Inc. (http://opensourcematters.org/ ). OSM is a not-for-profit formed under United States and New York state law that provides organizational, legal, and financial support for the Joomla! open-source project. OSM has been incorporated as a New York not-for-profit to ensure the Joomla project and future projects continue to exist beyond the participation of individual volunteers.
Copyrights to pages, components, modules and additional material as well as multilingual databases created in the Joomla platform are owned by either www.rikasmediavirta.fi or the separately mentioned creator.
Copyrights to the contents of the pages are owned by the Association for the destroyed arts museum, with the exceptions mentioned later in this statement.
2) Copyrights to pictures and texts marked ©Adam are completely owned by the association. The material may be produced by the association, or the creator has yielded the copyrights over to ADAM by a spoken or written agreement. Such material may also be marked ©Adam first_name.family-name, which means that the creator’s name has also been mentioned. This does not, however, in any way limit the rights of the association. For using material marked ©Adam for commercial purposes, the user must ask for permission to do this from the association. This does not affect the right of citation as defined in the Finnish copyright law, 22§. The original creator also has so-called paternity rights to the material.
3) Pictures and texts borrowed from an open source, such as Wikipedia, contains at least the statement “Source: xxxxxxxxx” and usually also information of the open license concerned as well as the name or pseudonym of the paternity right owner. The Association for destroyed art museum does not own the copyright to this borrowed material and can not grant or deny permission to publish it elsewhere.
4) As to pictures and texts not marked with any copyright statement, such material is, due to its age, usually free from copyright restrictions and can be regarded as “free material”. This is the case with most of the photographic material about works of art, buildings and milieus.
We emphasize the the Association of the destroyed art museum has no copyright to these works and it can not grant or deny permission to use such material elsewhere. Whoever wants to use material defined in (4) must find out the copyright limitations and act according to them.
Even if some material may no longer be copyrighted, there may be a note of where and how such material has come to be at our disposal.
On behalf of the Association for the destroyed art museum
