Defunctland Archives Copyright Distinctions

While there are many copyright distinctions for creative works, the Defunctland Archives requires submitters to choose from three simplified copyright options. We ask that you respect the original creator by following the guidelines of the option they chose. Here are the three distinctions:

1. Public Domain – The creator of this work has submitted this creation to the public domain and it is free of known copyright restrictions.

2. Attribution CC BY 3.0 – The creator of this work allows others to distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon their work, even commercially, as long as they credit the creator for the original creation.

3. Restricted – The creator of this work has only made this viewable for the Defunctland Archives. Reproduction, distribution, remixing, tweaking, or building upon this work is prohibited.

This archive is only possible because of the many generous contributors, and Defunctland is dedicated to making sure that those that have submitted photos are respected. On top of the above copyright restrictions, the Defunctland Archives strictly prohibits any use of material that includes any amount of focus on people included in the archive’s photos and videos. The purpose of this archive is to document the history of theme parks, so many of our submissions include photos of people. Any use of the material, even if transformative, that is focused on the individual humans in any way, is prohibited and will not be allowed.
