Can I remind forum members to make sure that you don't publish copyright material here without the owner's permission. Such breaches would include:-
- Copies of articles on other sites
- Copies of images on other sites
- Hotlinks* to images on other sites
I'm not a lawyer, but my understanding is that it's acceptable to copy a short extract from a published article together with a link to the original.
Links to your own images on file sharing sites, or direct copies of those images, are of course acceptable.
Links to images on sites which give specific permission to use those images (e.g. glitter-graphics) are acceptable.
If in doubt, please don't use material from other sites without specific permission. Thank you.
* 'Hotlinks' are direct links to specific components on a web page. For example, a picture on a web page will normally have its own address, which the web page refers to in order to display it. It's possible for another site, such as this forum, to link to that picture so that it's displayed here. If you don't have permission to use the picture in this way, doing this is referred to as 'bandwidth theft', and is not permitted.
