Arnold Genthe Collection

Rights and Restrictions Information

Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 20540-4730


Publication and other forms of distribution: No known restrictions. The photographs Arnold Genthe made for his own use are considered to be in the public domain. Other photographs (generally studio portraits in the collection) could have been produced as "work for hire" and, if that were the arrangement, copyright may be held by the original client (Works made for hire are under copyright for 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation, whichever is shorter.) To assist researchers, the Prints & Photographs Division made every effort to include in the catalog record client/sitter names that could be deciphered from the photographer's sleeves and logbook. The Prints & Photographs Division does not have logbook information about clients after 1911. If such names are not included in the catalog records, there is no further information. Privacy and publicity rights may also apply.

Access: Subject to P&P policy on serving originals.

Reproduction (photocopying, hand-held camera copying, photoduplication and other forms of copying allowed by "fair use"): Subject to P&P policy on copying.

Credit Line: Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, Arnold Genthe Collection, [Reproduction number e.g., LC-DIG-ppmsca-123456].
