For Depositors

  • How can I become a contributor?
  • How does the EVIA Project protect the intellectual property rights of its depositors and their consultants?
    As a nonprofit educational project devoted to the creation, discovery and dissemination of knowledge of value in ethnographic fields, the EVIA Project is committed to complying with all applicable laws regarding intellectual property. That commitment includes respect for copyright ownership and the full exercise of the "fair use" rights accorded to users of copyrighted works under Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act. In order to safeguard rights to privacy and intellectual/cultural property, access to materials deposited in the Project will be restricted to educational use and video streaming (it will not be possible for users to download materials). Provisions also have been made for depositors to render inaccessible either permanently or for a specified period of time certain segments of video that are deemed politically, culturally, or personally sensitive.
