I have a problem with Internment.net. I have been researching a local cemetery and those that have been interned there and its history, sadly it is no more. Internment.net has continued to allow old unverified misinformation to be posted. The contributor has long since died himself and according to their policy they only allow the contributor to remove or edit information. Obviously, this site does not care about the accuracy of its information if they allow unverified information on their site.

    In response to Molly, I’ve been using Interment.net for years now, and appreciate what they are doing. Their goal is to present information exact as it comes from the source, regardless of what one person says is correct or not. The whole point of publishing records, is to show you what the record says, not to correct it.

Regrettably, perhaps, the site has a very strict policy about use:
“You may not reproduce, republish, post, transmit or distribute any Materials without the express written consent of the owner of the Materials.
Copyright to a specific article, transcription, or photograph published on this website is owned by the person, business, or organization who created it.”
That appears to mean that I can put facts from the site onto my home computer but must not then upload such material to any other website, such as WorldConnect or MyHeritage. Facts are not generally able to be the subject of copyright. Has anyone tested the republication of facts from the site?
