Public Domain Dedication

One of the aims of Huddersfield Exposed is to make available historic materials, including facsimiles, reproductions and transcriptions of books, newspaper articles, photographs, postcards, etc.

When there is overwhelming evidence that the original item is already in the Public Domain (i.e. copyright has expired), any digital reproductions created specifically for this web site — such as PDF versions of books or transcriptions of the text — can be assumed to also be in the Public Domain.

Under European Law, it is possible under certain circumstances to claim copyright over reproductions of Public Domain items. To avoid any confusion that this might be the case, these items will usually be marked with the following PD Dedication:

The following is made available free of any copyright restrictions.

Where the dedication appears at the top of the page, it can be assumed that it applies to the content of the whole page. Where the dedication appears within a section of a page, it is only applicable to that section.

A list of pages with Public Domain items can be found here:

A more general list of publications about Yorkshire that are in the Public Domain and have been digitised elsewhere is available here:

Every reasonable step will be taken before using the Public Domain Dedication to ensure that no part of the item is protected by copyright. However, should you have any concerns, please use the contact details below.
