Fees for Rights and Reproductions

The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology charges production and use fees for images supplied for publication, exhibition, or distribution in any format (print or electronic.) Publications with very large press runs and/or high profile exposure may be subject to higher negotiated fees. Additional research fees may apply. These fees support the museum in its mission to build, preserve, and provide access to its collection. All reproduction rights are retained by the Museum for its photographic images, films, and sound recordings, unless they are already in the public domain. The Museum reserves the right to restrict the use of reproduction of rare or sensitive materials and to refuse permission for inappropriate use.

Request for permission to publish, electronically transmit, or publicly display materials supplied by the Museum must be made on a Permissions Request Form. Please note that reproduction rights for images are not granted until the permission form has been countersigned by the Museum director or his/her proxy and returned to the requestor.

All permissions to reproduce are given with the understanding that the requestor sends one copy of the publication to The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, University of California Berkeley, 103 Kroeber Hall MC 3712, Berkeley CA 94720-3712.
