Publishing permit

For A New World's permission to publish

The copyright of all content on this website resides with the copyright holder and we acknowledge the importance of that in order to protect the rights of artists, writers, composers and others.

As the legal domicile of For a new world is Sweden, we have to apply the laws of copyright in this country. Unless there is a written contract stating differently, or some other agreement that is accepted by the creator (Upphovsperson), the copyright always resides with the person(s) who created the material in question.

Since much of the material dates from years, or even decades ago, the copyright of some material is not always possible to ascertain. Where the copyright holder can be identified we will make every effort to obtain permission from her/him. Where ownership cannot be established, we may publish material in good faith and with the understanding that it will be unpublished from For A New World the moment it is contested, until an agreement has been found with the copyright holder.

Licencing information

If you wish to reproduce, or in some other form use anything on the platform, in whatever form, you will need to be in touch with the copyright holder. In view of our Privacy Policy we will not provide any contact information of the copyright holder, unless he or she has instructed us to do so.

Privacy Policy (incl. Cookie Policy)

For A New World will not give, lease, distribute or sell personal information to anyone. The only exception is if it is required by law, and we will then inform whoever it concerns. We do not aim to collect or store any sensitive personal data whatsoever, and what little we do hold, is only with your consent - either because you have signed up for our newsletter; made a donation, or because you have agreed to our cookies policy which only allows us to collect anonymous statistics about site use. Our full legal notice and privacy policy may be found here.

Publishing permit

The Swedish government authority for Press, Radio and Television (MPRT) has granted the Foundation For a new world publishing license no. 21-03302 to publish the internet platform with the same name. The foundation has done this in view of the charter that stipulates its mission. It is valid for ten years and can then be extended for further ten-year periods. You can read more about the publishing licence on the webiste of MPRT (in Swedish only).

Having this publishing license means that we adhere to the same obligations as any publisher in Sweden. This in accordance with the law on freedom of the press, which was written into the Swedish constitution 1766 (as the first country in the world to do so). The same license also give us the freedom to publish anything we consider to be "in the public interest", including some information that normally would fall under various privacy protections, such as the GDPR.

We will do our outmost not to publish any material that may hurt individuals and are doing all that we can in order to seek permission and agreement from copyright holders and other individuals who may be affected by what we publish. Should we, even so, come to a point where there is a fundamental disagreement, the publisher will have to defend the decision to publish in a Swedish court of law. A guilty verdict could mean financial fines or a prison term for the person who has assumed the role of publisher.

The basis for our publishing is expressed in the mission of the Foundation and the Publisher's statement.
