Copyrighted Images: PLEASE READ - VERY IMPORTANT

Copyrighted Photos from Personal and Commercial Sites

Folks

A reminder that images posted at airliners.net are copyrighted, as they are from other personal and commercial aviation photography sites (such as FenceCheck.com). The airliners.net policy is here.

Some posts here have uploaded pics from airliners.net (with the copyright tag on it). But this is against their policy. You can link them, not upload them.

Here is the text from airliners.net with highlights in bold:

All photos on this site are protected by international copyright laws. You have limited rights to personally view the images with your web browser and to use them as your personal computer wallpaper (or background image) on your own computer.
These photos may not otherwise be reproduced, distributed, cropped, resized, or otherwise altered without the written permission of the photographer
. No commercial use of these photos may be made in any way. All rights are reserved.

You may not use these photos on any web page, commercial or non-commercial, for profit or non-profit, without written permission from the photographer. You may however link to the photos in the manner described below

. Have you found a photo in our database that you would like to use? To receive permission to use a photo from Airliners.net in any other way than the one described above, you have to contact the photographer (the copyright holder) of the photo. We assure you, it is a very simple process and all of our photographers are very willing to help and most will reply to your inquiries within a day. You can contact our photographers by using the e-mail form linked to beside each photo on Airliners.net.

The digital photos on this site are licensed to Airliners.net. They are equipped with a footer with copyright and license information and also carry an invisible watermark. If you receive permission from the photographer to use a particular photo, you may use a copy from Airliners.net as long as you inform us of the usage as to avoid misunderstandings
(we do not appreciate and react strongly when finding our photos on other sites that use them without permission).
We do however advice that you get a new copy of the photo directly from the photographer that does not carry our license and watermark.

Finally, we ask that you mention Airliners.net where and when you use photos originally found on our site, whatever agreement you have with the photographer. It doesn't need to be big, just a small mention in whatever way you choose. As you might have realized by now, we do not make any money from selling photos, everything goes directly to the individual photographer. Our only form of "income" is your help in spreading the word about our website. Please respect that.

From now on, any posts with uploaded pictures from Airliners.net will be deleted unless you are the original photographer. You can, however, link to pictures following the instructions from airliners.net, but you may NOT hotlink them off of their site We will regularly check for any photos that might be in fiolation of copyright, and will remove any that we find.

Please note: This does not apply solely to airliners.net, but ANY commercial aviation site. Copyright infringement is a very serious matter, and ARC will not perpetuate copyright infringement by violating the policy of commercial aviation websites.

Thanks for your cooperation in this matter in order to maintain the integrity of ARC.

Oh, and no poo-poo'ing someone's favorite plane.

Regards,

The ARC Moderating Team
