Hi guys,

I have just found two photos that i believe are a copyright violation. Firstly, this photo of Andy Hunt's:

Photo © Andrew Hunt



Which is here:

http://www.aviate.ws/showphoto.cgi?photoid=954

Andy - you don't happen to have an alter ego do you?

Secondly, a picture taken out of "Boeing" by David Lee, of VH-OJB being rolled out on page 106. Which is here:

http://www.aviate.ws/showphoto.cgi?photoid=955

Although, this seems like the scan is better than the picture so maybe the company bought the picture off the photographer, i don't know.

Anyone help?

Regards

Dan

I am sorry to disappoint you, but I sincerely doubt that any of Airliners.net's photographs are officially protected from copyright. Presuming they are not, they are not copyrighted. Consequently, people are lawfully (under English Law) allowed to use everyone's photographs on this site for whatever purpose.

People have no right whatsoever to do that without permission.
Especially not in the case of Andy's shot with a new persons name as photographer!

Yes, they do. If each photograph is not officially registered it is not copyrighted. Thus, anyone can use it for whatever purpose they desire. This is lawful. If they were copyrighted, then it would be unlawful.

I am a Law student, so take it from me!

Hi Pe@rson

You'll have to brush up on your knowledge regarding copyright. English law won't save you or anybody else on this matter.

Pe@rson:

please check your facts before posting. You are only allowed to freely use materials that are placed in the public domain. I own the copyrights to all of my photographs, have placed none of them in the public domain, and assert my rights by placing a copyright mark of either my own or Airliners.net upon them. If anybody then wishes to use them without my permission, they have had fair warning that they are doing so unlawfully.

Perhaps you should read a little further in your law books before making arrogant postings that suggest you know more than the rest of us.

Ok - we do not cover this topic, and so therefore I am not in a real position to confidently give my professional opinion. I will visit the library and research the situation.

You will, when I am possession of the true facts. I did not choose Commercial Law modules, in which Copyright is taught.

Now - gonna buy me a beer?  Smile

What about the book, surely taking a picture from a book and then posting it on the internet as one of your own is illegal...

I will go scan the page in to show you its the same picture..

Copyright is implicit, not explicit.
The only thing registering copyright does (in the US) is make it easier to prove in court it is actually yours (as there is now a date attached to it as to when it was created).
Internationally, this is not required. Copyright online is of course very difficult to enfore. Whose copyright law should apply, for example.
Unless everyone is in the same country, several laws might apply (and in the US, that means the same state...).
- country of origin of the photographer
- country of origin of the company owning the site (logical)
- country of origin of the company owning the hardware
- country where the hardware is located
- country of origin of the suspected violator
- country where the violation took place
etc..

Correct Jwenting.

Once Pe@rson in posession of the facts (International, not English) then he'll be more enlightened.

Buy you a beer? Maybe...

Your round first....I'll have a single malt....

lol!! Well, that's not so bad, Jwenting, as it could be a cheaper evening! Actually, my girlfriend, who very rarely drinks, can get tipsy on two Hooches. In contrast, I frequently spend £30 or so when out. However, I have not been out for sometime, so perhaps next time it will be less.

Anyway, one orange juice for you, a pint of Foster's for me and whatever the Scottish chap wants.  Smile
