Copyright and Other Restrictions: The Library of Congress is not aware of any U.S. copyright protection (see Title 17, U.S.C.) or any other restrictions in the material in this Collection.

The special character of collections that result from ethnographic field research is outlined in What is an Ethnographic Field Collection?. The American Folklife Center and the professional fieldworkers who carry out these projects feel a strong ethical responsibility to the people they have visited and who have consented to have their lives documented for the historical record. The Center asks that researchers approach the materials in this collection with respect for the culture and sensibilities of the people whose lives, ideas, and creativity are documented here.

As is often the case with materials collected in the course of ethnographic field research, however, it is difficult or impossible to sufficiently identify specific songs sung by participants which precludes performing a comprehensive assessment of the copyright status of underlying musical rights in lyrics or compositions. Research performed by the staff of the American Folklife Center in anticipation of the release of this Collection in American Memory indicates that the underlying musical works appear to be in the public domain.
