Understanding Copyright & Intellectual Property
Copyright laws provide for statutory penalties running into thousands of Pounds/Dollars/Euros (sometimes hundreds of thousands) per violation for theft of images/video or any other copyrighted works relating to this web site, including design images, text, descriptions and so forth.
There is a lot of confusion about what copyright is. Below we set out some of the myths and what copyright actually means...
Popular Myths
We, the website owners/operators, have to prove that you (the viewer/customer) have stolen something. WRONG. That statement may be true for most things but in the world of "copyright infringement" you have to prove that you DIDN'T. For example, if someone sees one of our images used on your website/computer or a downloaded print and we can prove that it is, indeed, our image and that we own the copyright on it (by simply being able to produce the original image itself), we can make a demand that you prove that you have legally acquired the right to use that image either by a paid invoice or written permission from the copyright holder or their representatives. If you can't prove it you're in trouble.
I could simply remove or mask the watermarks on images or videos. WRONG. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 makes it a criminal offense to remove watermarks meant to protect copyright. Many don't realise that, under copyright law, it is specifically illegal to remove a watermark from an image or video. Not only is the act of removal prohibited, it is assumed that the very attempt to remove or mask a digital copyright indicates a willful intent to violate copyright. And that's something the courts come down really hard on.
I have bought the content from your site so I can do what I like with it. VERY WRONG. Any membership you purchase merely grants you a licence to download the material for YOUR OWN PERSONAL USE. Any other use of the material, whether showing it to others, sending it by email, re-posting it, printing it (and anything else you can think of) is expressly forbidden and is a violation of copyright.
What is Intellectual Property
"Intellectual property" refers to original creations in the fields of literature and the arts. Most countries in the world provide automatic copyright protection to any item of intellectual property at the instant the item is created. At the instant a photo is taken or a video filmed, it automatically becomes the "intellectual property" of the photographer/videographer who took it. It makes no difference what the subject is or why the photograph was taken.
What is Copyright Infringement
Legally, the person who holds the copyright to an image/video etc has the absolute right to control how you use that material or to deny the right to use that material. Any unauthorized usage is an "infringement" of copyright. This includes using the picture or video or part of a video for "reference" in a derivative work. It also includes use of material beyond that which has been legitimately purchased. For example, offering images for resale or for public viewing without first obtaining a license would be an infringement of copyright.
Many don't realize just how all-encompassing a copyright is. For example, there's a common misconception that any image appearing on a website may be downloaded and "saved" to a computer. This is not the case. The very act of saving a copyrighted image to your computer regardless of whether you ever do anything else with the image or not constitutes a copyright infringement, minor maybe, but done all the time and still an infringement nonetheless.
Why are the penalties so severe?
Copyright laws exist to encourage people to be creative by giving them the right to control and benefit from the products of that creativity. Because it's so easy these days for one person to "steal" the creative output of somebody else, lawmakers have recognized that for copyright laws to be effective, the penalties must be severe.
