The creators of this digital resource are committed to respecting and protecting the copyright in all material included in this RCUK-funded project. We are especially indebted to the Edwin Morgan Trust for its support and generosity in allowing us to include a selection of Edwin Morgan’s unpublished work within this resource. Edwin Morgan’s work constitutes an integral part of this non-commercial research project.
At heart, this project is concerned with an academic exploration of the practicalities – and implications – of diligent search when digitising unique cultural artefacts such as the Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks. In digitising the selection of Scrapbook pages in this digital resource we have endeavoured to identify and contact the owners of the relevant rights in the material included within these pages, although we have not been able to identify all relevant copyright owners.
Many copyright owners that we were able to contact granted us permission to include their work within this resource, without requesting a fee. We are grateful to them. Some copyright owners were prepared to grant permission but only on condition of payment. Because of the non-commercial, critical and research-led nature of this project, no licensing fees were paid.
Regarding material that is in copyright but for which we could not secure express permission – either because we could not identify the owner concerned or because permission was contingent upon payment of a fee – we reproduce it here in accordance with sections 29 and 30 of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (the CDPA) permitting use for non-commercial research and for the purposes of criticism, review and quotation. Wherever reasonably practicable, acknowledgement and attribution is paid to the original author of the work and to the original source of publication.
If you are the owner of any material that remains in copyright, and you consider that our use of the material does not fall within the scope of the copyright exceptions referenced above, or is not otherwise lawful, then please contact us so that we can discuss this issue and hopefully address any concerns you may have. In this event, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, however, we have no desire to permanently redact any material from the Scrapbook pages reproduced within this resource. In this, we are mindful of the fact that Edwin Morgan’s work benefits from the moral right of integrity as defined within the CDPA. These Scrapbooks are a unique cultural artefact. Wherever possible, we believe they should be made accessible to the public in a manner respectful of Edwin Morgan’s talent and memory.
Finally, by making these pages from Edwin Morgan’s Scrapbook available online as part of this research project, in no way are we authorising, whether expressly or impliedly, the subsequent re-use of this material by any member of the public or any other third parties. If you wish to make use of any part of this material, it is your responsibility to determine whether copyright and any other permissions are required.
