I honestly don't know, sparrows lass, but if we continue to do as we have been for the past year, i.e. linking to the article, regardless of where it originates, then we shouldn't have a problem.

A really good reminder; good to remember that whatever someone has created, whether a photo, artwork, or written material, is automatically copyrighted. When I first began doing artwork from photos, an acquaintance lent me photos taken by a friend of hers, (not a professional). Shortly after the artwork won two awards, I read an Artlaw article warning against that very practice. Even though I called the one who took the photos and told her. She was furious. To top it off, her husband is a lawyer. It all came out alright, but I could have been in huge trouble.

Good Lord! I dread to think how that could have ended for you, pruthw! I'm glad it all turned out right in the end, I guess the moral of the story is ask the owner before you use, right?!

Yep - it's a minefield, alright! But in your defence, pruthw, I'd have been very proud that your artwork of my photos won awards. It takes all sorts, doesn't it?!!

Oh yes, I agree depps, I'd have felt the same way if it had been my photo too. In fact I'd have felt quite honoured someone thought my photo good enough to want to draw it. Also in your defence, pruthw, once you knew about the artwork copywirte law, you did at least contact the onwer of the photo. It's just a shame there are people out there who are probably aware of this law, but lack your moral standards.
Good on you for the awards! :thumbsup:
