AMIPA's Copyright and Use Policy for Alaska's Digital Archives

The Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association's (AMIPA) images in Alaska's Digital Archives may be downloaded and viewed by individuals, schools or libraries for personal use, study, research or classroom teaching without permission. Any fair use, as defined by copyright law, is acceptable. Any materials used for academic research or otherwise should be fully credited with the source (including creator name and item numbers and/or collection name as listed in Alaska's Digital Archives).

Permission to reproduce these images in any other form (including but not limited to: electronic or paper publishing, websites, film, DVD, CD, video, exhibits, or advertising) must be obtained in writing from AMIPA. Applicants must assume full responsibility for questions of potential copyright violation in their use of AMIPA's digital images.

Copyright of historical archival collections may be difficult or impossible to determine. AMIPA would like to hear from any copyright owners who are not properly identified with regard to any of the images we have in Alaska's Digital Archives.

Moving images in AMIPA's collection may also be viewed free of charge at our UAA/APU Consortium Library location. In the event that a viewing copy for a specific collection is not currently available, we can produce one at our standard media transfer rates. Note that we recommend you make an appointment to view collections; also, the viewing facility is large enough to accommodate a small group.

Additionally, some collections at AMIPA are available for stock footage licensing. Please contact us for more information.
