Copyright Information On The WWW

The use of pictures that I have published on THIS website...

For works created after January 1, 1978. Pursuant to the 1976 U.S. Act, all works created after January 1, 1978 are afforded a term of statutory copyright beginning at the work's creation and enduring for the life of the author plus fifty years after his death. 17 U.S.C. 302(a). The 1976 Act further provides that a work is "created" so as to begin the term of statutory copyright when it is fixed in tangible form under the authority of the author for the first time, regardless of whether the work is registered with the Copyright Office. 17 U.S.C. 101. The basic term of the author plus fifty years is equally applicable to unpublished and published works.


Using photos with people

If you are using photos with people in them for advertising, you need their permission. People have a right to profit, and exclude someone else from profiting on their photograph or likeness. This right continues after their death and is given to their heirs.
