Rights & Access Statement
The materials in this online collection, The Michael Tigar Papers, were donated by Michael E. Tigar to the University of Texas at Austin, on behalf of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History (“Briscoe Center”) and for use by the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice (“Rapoport Center”). Tigar granted permission to make these materials publicly available on The Michael Tigar Papers website for personal, educational, research, and other nonprofit uses.
The materials are made available on the website under one or more of the following situations:
- Copyrighted text and media are accessible for education and research purposes as legal fair use under Section 107 of U.S. Copyright Law;
- The Briscoe Center or Rapoport Center has permission from rights holders to make them accessible;
- The rights are owned by the Briscoe Center (i.e., the oral histories);
- There are no known restrictions on use (e.g. orphan works); OR
- They are in the public domain.
Items displayed in The Michael Tigar Papers may be subject to copyright restrictions; their display on this website is NOT itself an indication of their clearance for use. Responsibility for making an independent legal assessment and securing any necessary permissions ultimately rests with persons desiring to use particular items in the context of the intended use. All users assume full responsibility for any infringement of copyright and publication rights of reproduced materials.
In any event, any commercial use of the materials owned by the Rapoport Center or the Briscoe Center is prohibited without prior permission.
Due to the nature of archival collections, we are not always able to identify rights information. All rights holders are listed, when known. We are eager to hear from any unidentified rights owners, so that we may obtain accurate information.
If you have any additional information about the media or would like to suggest a correction, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon request, the Rapoport Center will remove copyrighted materials from public view while rights issues are addressed.
