This site is maintained and updated by fans of Viggo Mortensen, and is in no way affiliated with Viggo Mortensen, Perceval Press, or any movie production company. We in no way claim the artwork or photographs displayed to be our own. Copyrights and trademarks for the books, films, articles, and other promotional materials are held by their respective owners and their use is allowed under the fair use clause of the Copyright Law, which states specifically...

"...the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright."

At Viggo-Works we have many writers and photographers who have contacted us for the expressed purpose of reproducing their work on our website. There are far more who have given permission when asked. However, this site also contains copyrighted material the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. We are making such material available for the sole purpose of criticism, comment, and news reporting, and in our efforts to advance understanding of environmental, political, human rights, and social justice issues, etc. We believe this constitutes a 'fair use' of any such copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US Copyright Law. In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, the material on this site is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for news reporting, comment, research, and educational purposes.

If any parties with rights of ownership object to the non-profit use of any of this website's material, we would ask that they please contact Riv Res to either have the material immediately removed or an agreement arranged.
