Copyright issues and using this forum

Post by Pip on April 14th 2008, 11:11 pm

We would just like to ensure that all our members are aware of the issues surrounding copyright and how it applies to users of this board.

If you wish to show an image in your posting that isn't yours, maybe that you've found on a website or scanned from a book - please DON'T post the image up here without obtaining prior permission from the website/copyright owner. Instead, simply provide a clickable link to the image in your message so that members can go and see it in-situ on the original site. The same applies to text - if you've found some interesting information that you wish to post here either a) re-write using entirely your own words and giving a credit to the original site for the inspiration or b) provide a clickable link to the website so the information can be viewed in-situ. Please don't cut and paste the information here word for word and attempt to pass it off as your own work.

There are a great many myths surrounding the issue of copyright - especially with regard to websites, with a great many people labouring under the misapprehension that any text or images posted on the web are in the public domain and therefore copyright-free - this is largely incorrect. Some links regarding the issues of copyright are below - we would be grateful if members would take the time to read them and adhere to them at all times whilst on this site (and one would hope, elsewhere).

Many thanks!

"Modern Art" is produced by incompetents, sold by charlatans and bought by ignoramuses?

It is enlightening to juxtapose "Fine Art" to "Modern Art"

eBay links can be posted in the Lava Lounge but not on the other forums because eBay deletes them 3 months after the listing has ended so the info is lost. Preferably, save the images to Pinterest and post the link.
