All uses of the images of the Memorial other than personal use or fair use pursuant to 17 U.S.C. ยง 107 must be by written permission sought from and granted by the Foundation.

If given written permission to use the spire logo, the Foundation requests that all non-photographic images of the spires be prepared to show that the tallest of the spires is on the right-hand side. If that is not done, the spires will appear backward wherein the tallest spire is on the left-hand side, which would be a misrepresentation of the logo.
