Privacy & Copyright Policy
The Markhouse Drama Club (MDC) recognises the right to privacy and has taken due care with the inclusion of the photographic material displayed in this website; also with the video films linked to it via You Tube.
It is therefore hoped that former members of the MDC, and those young people involved in the Performing Arts Projects funded by the former Cyril Malyon Memorial Fund (CMMF), will welcome the opportunity to see and enjoy the photographs, films and other forms of memorabilia of their involvement in the respective activities.
If you do not wish for any material in which you are shown, or mentioned, to be included in the website, or you feel that any of the content is inappropriate, then please advise us through the Website Contact Page so that the MDC can make any amendments or corrections, or remove any material which may be unsuitable, or infringe anyone’s right to privacy
Copyright. Photographic & Video content
Markhouse Drama Club photographs and videos in, or linked to, this website, are mainly owned by former members. They also include a number from the former ‘walthamstowhistory.com’ website owned by the late Richard (Dickie) Dunn.
Photographs and videos of the CMMF Performing Arts Activity Projects are, unless otherwise stated, owned by the CMMF/MDC and their use in this website has been agreed by the respective organisations concerned.
Films of Activity Projects linked through YouTube have been placed there either by the MDC/CMMF or by the organisations that were funded to provide the activities. Where the latter applies these are attributed accordingly
The source and copyright, where known, of non MDC/CMMF photographic and video material is acknowledged within the website
The material of the website is therefore strictly copyright, as attributed, and all rights are reserved. Reproduction in any form without permission is prohibited.
Former MDC members wishing to obtain copies of productions and/or re-union memorabilia should make their request via the Website Contact Page
Script images linked to the MDC list of productions have received a copyright waiver from Samuel French Limited. This waiver also covers those plays which were originally published by Evans Brothers, London, but are now licensed by Samuel French Limited.
‘Make it Murder’ and ‘Anybody for Tennis’ by Jack Last and ‘Saloon Bar’ by Frank Harvey were published by HFW Deane of London. ‘Pearly Pearls’ by John Mellish, was published by Abel Heywood & Sons of Manchester, ‘Wanted – One Body’ by Charles Raymond Dyer was published by The English Theatre Guild and ‘Its A Record’ by Wilfred Massey and Kent Richards by Wilfred Massey Publishing.
As far as can be determined from an Internet search and other enquiries as at October 2016, these companies no longer exist and the ‘titles’ cannot be traced to a current publisher or copyright owner to obtain permission for their use. The MDC has therefore not knowingly sought to infringe any current copyright agreement or entitlement that may exist for these titles.
Any information regarding these entitlements will be appreciated and can be forwarded via the Website Contact Page. The MDC will immediately remove the relevant images and seek the required permission of any publishing and/or copyright owner found.
