Due to the nature of archival collections, we are not always able to identify detailed copyright information and rights of privacy, publicity and trademark. We are eager to hear from any rights owners, so that we may obtain accurate information.

If you are a rights holder and believe you have found material in Yeshiva University Libraries Digital Collection for which you have not granted permission (and is not covered by a copyright exception under U.S. copyright laws), you may request the removal of the material from our site by submitting a notice to yair@yu.edu with the following information:

  1. Identification of the material that you believe to be infringing and information sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
  2. Your full name and contact information, such as an address, telephone number, and email address;
  3. A statement that you are the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed and that you have a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the rights owner, their agent, or the law;
  4. A statement that the information in the notice is accurate and made under penalty of perjury, and
  5. Your physical or electronic signature and date

Upon receiving a notice that includes the items listed above, we will remove the allegedly infringing material from public view while we assess the issues identified in your notice. We may ask for additional information to better understand the issue and its consequences.

Please note that in order to preserve the authenticity and integrity of the historical record, it is unlikely that we will correct errors or inaccuracies contained in original items, redact digital content, or otherwise remove access to materials without a legal basis.
