Flickr Rights Statement

The Library joined Flickr Commons in November 2009.

The images published on our Flickr Commons photostream| are all marked as having ‘no known copyright restrictions’ attached to them. This means that we are unaware of any current copyright restrictions for displaying this selection of photographs from our collection within the Flickr website. This is either because LSE owns the copyright, or the term of copyright has expired, or because no evidence has been found that copyright restrictions apply.

However, many of our images are of unknown provenance, with no accompanying data about their creators or date of creation. If you make use of an image from our photostream, you are reminded to conduct an independent analysis of applicable law before proceeding with a particular new use.

The images on our photostream are meant to be used for personal, educational or research purposes. To obtain high quality digital copies, or to find out more about copyright terms for the reproduction of specific works in our collection, please contact the Library.

Please note that it is our policy to charge licensing fees for commercial use.

We would be very glad to receive any information that would help us complete or update our copyright records; if you have any such information, please contact| the Library.
