I didn't say it was an alternate repository. The fact remains that you are
accessing the images as a subscriber to a service and that subscription's
terms of usage to which you have agreed.

The subscription service in many cases have agreements that
allow them exclusive rights to provide the access, but the images come
from
the archives directly (in case of the above). The UK censuses say "Images

reproduced by courtesy of The National Archives, London, England." The
images may be originating with the UK Archives as is the case with
Canadian
ones. The subscription service is simply the means by which the images are
displayed, it is not an alternative repository.
