We have endeavored and are endeavoring to find and post as many obits as we can because we feel that these tell a bit of history about that individual, and the area in which they lived and died. A few folks have taken issue with posting those obits, so here is my perspective: First of all, it is my understanding that facts cannot be copyrighted and secondly, most obits are not written by the newspapers that publish them, so they would not necessarily hold any copyright to obits that they publish. Then, there is the time frame: Anything published before 1923 is public domain and obits published in a newspaper lose any copyright protection they might have had after a certain amount of time has elapsed. It is not our purpose to offend by what we are doing, nor to violate any copyright, we are simply trying to give a bit of personality to those who have passed this way before us. We feel that they deserve to be more than just names and dates.
