Copyright of films on Vintage Home Movies

There are many video clips on this site and the copyright of the clips is officially owned by the person who took the images.

However, I find the whole issue of copyright for these type images a bit vague. Although the copyright is obviously owned by the person who took the footage, it isn’t known who that is in this case, and since in every instance I have bought the films as a purchase from eBay, I’ve taken the view that there is nothing wrong in them being displayed to the public. However, I’ve made the decision that I won’t put anything on the site which could cause anyone who may still be alive any embarrassment – i.e. anyone undressed, any scene which looks particularly personal etc.

That said, if there are any clips on this site that  anyone believes they have claim over and they have reasonable proof I will gladly take that clip off the site.
