Re: Internet Image - Unable to Locate Owner

Hi Andy Thank you for your reply which was most interesting and informative. There is, surprisingly, very little information about the photograph or the studio on the internet. The photograph was by Thomas Fenech ( studios ) in Cospicua, Malta possibly circa 1900. The studio was near the 'Soldiers a...

Re: Copyright Query On Using a Greeting Card

Hi Andy Thanks again. I've trying to word my email to her in such a way that wouldn't make her feel that I was steeling her work. But having read your response to me, I feel more comfortable proceeding with bought copies of her artwork and using them as I planned without contacting her again. The th...

Re: Copyright Query On Using a Greeting Card

Hi Andy Thank you so much for your response which was extremely helpful indeed and it did answer my question. Incidentally I am in the UK but the people in my street who organise the twice yearly 'yard sale' opted for the American term for reasons best known to them. I don't intend to alter the arti...

Copyright Query On Using a Greeting Card

Hi, I wonder if someone would be kind enough to give me some advice on the following. As a hobby I make mixed media wall plaques and boxes. Although primarily a hobby, I do sell my stuff at yard sales on my street twice a year. I only ever use images that are in the public domain, downloaded without...

Thank you so much for that - the image is a scan from book of illustrations dating back to the 17th century.

Hi Andy Thank you for that. I don't read Italian but your translation of the main part was more than sufficient. Can I just quickly check then that I can safely download and use one of the images (from a different site) without having to seek permission. Thanks again for your response and help. George

What Is Ronchey Law

Hi This is follow up to a query I posted recently. I wanted to use an image for a charity project. The image appears in several sites most of which claim the image has no copyright attached to it (at least in the US).

Hi Andy

Thank you so much for your reply which was extremely useful. I think, for my own peace of mind, I won't use this image. I'm sure that there is little chance of the University of Bologna finding out if I did, but I would know.

Once again, thank you for clear and detailed reply.

Some of the people who have posted these images claim that they are 'probably' in the public domain believed to be free to use without restriction in the US - n...
