East Liverpool Historical Society

For many years, the East Liverpool YMCA operated a marvelous camp on the shores of the Beaver Creek, a few miles south of Lisbon. Very few young people missed the "Y Camp" experience while growing up in the East Liverpool area from its beginning in 1923 until the camp closed in 1974. Wonderful memories -- from the marathon race developed by long-time YMCA Director Carl "Pop" Werner to the campfire singing of "Pine Ridge Will Shine Tonight." remain vivid for many.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
