Copyright of Clansman EMERs and other technical documents.  

All Clansman documents are subject to Crown copyright. This lasts for 50 years from the date of publication, so any document published after 1961 will still be subject to this copyright (at the time of writing).

 Crown Copyright documents may be copied and distributed, without a need to obtain a licence, under strictly limited terms of use:

         Research for non-commercial purposes and private study

         For criticism, review and news reporting.

Plainly the first of these describes very well what VMARS members need Clansman documents for. As such, we are confident that neither VMARS itself or our members will be infringing copyright at all by using them to restore equipment, or study to understand how the equipment works.  

What is also clear, however, is that anyone attempting to sell these documents to other parties will most definitely be infringing this copyright (since this immediately brings in a 'commercial' element). Any such activity will implicate the Society in a breach of copyright, and will thus be regarded as 'bringing the Society into disrepute'.

Guidance on the use of Crown Copyright material may be obtained from

For these reasons we are not making documents in this category openly available on the Internet.
