This Site
Screaming Eagles Over the Prairie
and any of it's derivatives (i.e. Great Plains Rail Gallery) are strictly a not-for-profit personal website (new photos are
added when my own personal funds allow me to develop another roll of film!). Images other than mine have been used with the written permission from copyright owners, or with the knowledge that they may freely be used (within certain restrictions). If your image appears here without your approval, please contact me and it will be removed promptly. Unless otherwise noted, all images and text are copyrighted ©2000-2008 Todd Greuter. All rights reserved. All other images may not to be reproduced without permission from the copyright owners.

Copyrights & Usage
Copyrights on my site/materials are meant to protect the ownership rights of the individual photographers and the website Screaming Eagles, and are not meant to present any kind of control over Missouri Pacific logos or information. Information itself cannot be copyrighted, only a specific expression of it. Some of the scanned materials relating to the Missouri Pacific such as logos may still be copyrighted by successor Union Pacific R.R.. But most materials, such as maps, postcards, timetable covers, or ticketbooks published before new copyright rules took effect in 1978, are public domain. These are free for public distribution.

ALL materials and photography presented here by others may come with completely different restrictions than my own photography, and should be respected as such. Photography by others should be considered copyrighted material and should not be reproduced in any way without the copyright owner's permission.

Scanned photography of my own -- basically anything with my name on it, T. Greuter, including:
Lee Berglund's photos -- presented on Screaming Eagles and the Great Plains Rail Gallery may be used and redistributed, unaltered with the copyright line intact, for non-profit purposes, provided that beside the image myself and/or Screaming Eagles is credited and linked back to this page. A note to me stating where an image is being used would also be nice.
I do ask that you do not use a whole collection of images, such as for a website. Please obtain permission for any commercial or other use.

In other words respect the rights of all our contributing photographers and don't use their work without permission. Otherwise everything else is copyright by myself, and I extend to everyone freedom to draw on my materials for any non-profit purpose, as long as we are credited as the source. I present this information as a reference for fans and historians interested in the MoPac and its predecessor roads, to be promoted, preserved and shared online. Please contact me if you have any concerns.
