NOMA retains all rights, including copyright, of the images it creates and distributes. However, the Museum does not assume responsibility of obtaining copyrights for the artwork itself, as artists or other designated entities may retain the copyright for works in the Museum’s collection. If the Museum does not hold the copyright for the image requested, the applicant is responsible for obtaining permission from the copyright holder or representative. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ascertain whether their image and use falls under copyright law and to obtain copyright permission if necessary.
