Special Collections gave me permission to use images before. Have your policies changed?

Our policies, fees, and forms changed in June 2014. We lowered our prices, and we eliminated the requirement to seek our permission, as the physical owner of material, to publish or broadcast items from our holdings.  Previously, as a condition of access and in our capacity as the physical owner of material, we required that you seek our permission to publish from our holdings. This was always in addition to your responsibility for identifying and clearing all other copyrights, privacy rights, publicity rights, and trademarks pertaining to the items you wanted to use.  Our new policies reduce the number of permissions you need to obtain, lower your production costs,  and emphasize your responsibilities to clear any rights not owned by UNLV for your intended use.
