Re: Photos, copyright etc.

Two more comments: There is a yahoogroup thatr Mike setup for discussing copyright issues… IIRC it is called Licen@....  Second comment is there is a whole lot of copyfraud going on… people asserting the have a copyright on something when they do not.  One example that comes to mind is a xeroxed booklet reproducing some freight car folio drawings.   Maybe the original is in the public domain, maybe not, but making a Xerox of something you didn’t author doesn’t grant you copyright on anything.

Please post at what point an image is out of copyright and available for general use? You post we must own the copyright and there are those outside of copyright that have no such ownership. We need to be certain of those for posting.


Thank you,
