Dear All

 

Please can I remind ALL members that this forum is subject to copyright. In particular your attention is drawn to forum rules:-

 

25) Members must not post content belonging to others members on ANY other site. Contravening this rule will lead to an instant and permenant ban.

 

We will have no hesitation in enforcing this if we are made aware of a member posting content elsewhere. 

 

I am aware that content posted only here has appeared on Facebook recently - inquiries are in hand to identify/ban the member.

 

Your cooperation is appreciated.

 

All the best

 

Bill

Copyright is a touchy subject, I reccomend everyone watermarks their pictures, I like to but don't always get time. Therefore if anyones pictures show up elsewhere then then it is easy to see whos it is.

I am aware of one situation where I am happy for other members to in effect break rule 25 which is when I take photos of fun fair posters and post them on this site.

I personally am happy for others to share these photos on other websites such as Facebook pages. I fully agree with Bill with regards to any other photo I or others take & post on here, but would hate to see someone banned from here who has shared or used a photo I have taken of a fun fair poster.

My personal view is that Poster's are a special case - their publication and sharing can only help Showmen by advertising their events - I can't see a downside. However, as forum rules stand sharing them is a no-no. I will discuss with the forum panel to see if they want to write an exception into the rules for posters.

No, they are forum photos, subject to copyright. Anticipating this query I added a copyright notice to the ATFOTF Facebook page this morning.

I have discussed exempting photos of current funfair/circus posters from this rule with the Panel Forum - we are all in agreement that sharing posters is good for Showmen and should be allowed. No member will be penalised for copying/sharing photos of current posters.

How would you feel if you drove over 200 miles spent time and money of your own, then spent more time posting some photos of your travels on here (and only on here) to find someone passing the photos off as their own else where without even asking if they could use them??????? I know I was rather peeved off!!!!!!!!!!

watermark them, the best way is to put your name faintly through the middle, that way you don't spoil the pic. there is plenty of software available for free or little money.

Davey - Mark is saying that he is OK with photos of POSTERS being shared. The forum panel have discussed exempting just photos of POSTERS and are in agreement as any advertising can only help Showmen.

I used to copy right my photos...But i then thought if other people want to use them they can & take as many as they want as to me my photos must be ok for them to copy my photos (But still nice to asked) & i think if other people are sharing MY PHOTOS am over the moon & you all know your own photos!!

 

Enjoy ;)

but on the flip side and i will argue to the day is dawn if they shared the pictures on facebook and allowed people to share  the pics  theni cant see a problem surely if there great pictures you want them shown  i have argued this with a fb group owner but sadly doesnt understand how it should work .
