The Knockaloe Charitable Trust Copyright Statement

The Knockaloe Charitable Trust is committed to respecting copyright and other intellectual property rights. We also make every effort to protect The Knockaloe Charitable Trust and www.Knockaloe.im copyright and trade marks. We also take all reasonable efforts to trace the copyright owners of images and obtain permissions for reproductions within its interpretation of Knockaloe, its website and social media so that we can fully use and promote our assets as well as safeguard and provide access to our collection items.

All copyright and intellectual property rights in all material within the interpretation of Knockaloe, its website and social media by The Knockaloe Charitable Trust belongs to The Knockaloe Charitable Trust and other copyright owners. These include copyright, database right, first publication rights, patents, registered trade marks, know-how, intellectual or industrial property rights including format, art direction, look, feel and content.

All images and text within the Centre for WW1 Internment and its interpretation of Knockaloe, its website and social media are subject to The Knockaloe Charitable Trust’s copyright and copyright of other copyright owners. In respect of the Trust, this copyright has been put in place because:

  • Firstly the Trust’s work is the result of 6 years detailed and costly work in archives etc going through reams and reams of source documents and with specific permission given to us for what we are doing. This has been a massive investment in time and cost to research and write. If it were available elsewhere that investment would be devalued. We have developed relationships with various archives – we have been given specific permission from those archives to use the information in the way that we have and so we are not in a position to disseminate that in any different way other than directly by the Charity in the Visitors Centre as agreed with them.
  • Secondly the Trust has brought the images, text and overall interpretation together to create something unique and well researched on the Island so the people who visit have something new to see which cannot be seen elsewhere. Therefore we shall not be putting it online because we don’t want it available elsewhere. This way it brings people to us which helps us to collate the information for all of the descendants’ benefit. Donations by visitors is what will keep the Visitors Centre viable into the future. Restricting images and text by copyright ensures it stays for use only at the Visitors Centre allowing it to generate a revenue which will ensure its future.
  • Lastly we have invested in so much of the original archive material at substantial cost. The same goes for others who have allowed us access to their collections. We have had to get specific permissions re the images used where we do not own the copyright ourselves- as such we cannot allow other people to use them in any public way at all. Included within the images are also those the Trust has had to pay to license their use for the pre agreed purpose and we are specifically not allowed to let other people use them – anyone using them would need to contact the copyright owners directly. The Trust’s interpretation of Knockaloe contain thousands of pounds worth of photograph licenses. If we allow others to use them those copyright owners could legitimately take legal action against us for loss of revenue.

All images and text, identified as The Knockaloe Charitable Trust copyright and copyright of other copyright owners may be reproduced free of charge for a number of “fair dealing” exceptions. Within the Isle of Man these exceptions to copyright are detailed under the Copyright Act 1991 see  http://www.legislation.gov.im/cms/images/LEGISLATION/PRINCIPAL/1991/1991-0008/CopyrightAct1991_5.pdf Within the UK these exceptions to copyright are as outlined within the UK’s Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, as amended and revised.
