Fair use – Guidelines
When using a public domain work please credit the artist/creator. To let others know where the work or the image of the work can be found we ask you to credit the museum and to include a reference to MK&G Collection Online. The more you credit the museum as providing institution the more other museums will be motivated to also share their works as public domain images. We recommend to state the source as follows: Artist/creator, title, date, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, and a link to the object. Example: Julia Margaret Cameron, Die Schauspielerin Ellen Terry, 1864, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (Public Domain)
If you use or modify a public domain work you should not attribute the changes to the creator or the provider of the work. The name or logo of the artist/maker or the museum should not be used to endorse the modified work or any use of it without their consent.
Please do not use the work in any way that is unlawful and misleading. If you modify and redistribute a public domain work, any changes made to the original should be clearly indicated. You should label the work to show you have changed it, so that other users know who made the changes.
If you use a public domain work to generate new work or if you have additional information about it (such as where it came from, its author, content or other possible rights holders), please share your knowledge. That may include tagging, annotating or commenting on a public domain work that is published online and sending back this information to the institution that holds the original object, in the case of MK&G Collection Online the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg.
If the work includes culturally sensitive elements you should not change or use these in ways that might be derogatory to other people, cultures or communities.
We ask the users of public domain works not to remove any public domain mark or notice that has been applied, or provide misleading information about its copyright status. These recommendations are based on The Europeana Usage Guidelines for public domain works. This usage guide is based on goodwill. It is not a legal contract. We ask that you respect it.
