Copyright is a minefield of disscussions and emotive subjects around the intellectual property and re-use of images.
Many peeple are confused over the importance of intellectual property for photographs. Sites such as facebook further blur the line between right and wrong.
However, for photographs there is a very simple summary of the issues which I like to adhere to:
"ALL photographs are the intellectual property and ownership of the photographer.
There are NO circumstances where it is acceptable or legal to re-use ANY PART of those images without the permission of the owner."
If you would like to use one of my photos for ANY reason, please contact me.
