Notification of copyright for Word Information web site illustrations

Please be aware that the image you just came from was created especially for this website and may not be copied or used without special arrangements with John Robertson at this [email protected] e-mail contact address.

Do you want others to see this image?

The best procedure is to let others know which page, or pages, have the Word Info image, or images, that you want others to see; so then they can also enjoy the illustration(s) and related information at the source. Unless financial compensation is arranged for any utilization of the pictures, you do not have permission to use any of them!

It is necessary that you be prepared to make a financial contribution!

Please be aware of the fact that the images that were created for this site, and which have the copyright link that brought you to this page, were created at great expense.

A significant financial investment has been made to artists to make the images, so users will be able to both enjoy and find it easier to understand the content of the Word Info materials. So, if you want to take advantage of any of these images for your publication, lecture, etc.; you should be prepared to make a financial contribution or be honest and not use or steal the illustrations!

Again, if you are not prepared to help pay for some of the expenses of the illustrations, then simply refer your users to the Word Info page of interest to you.

The illustrations are under copyright and are NOT in the "public domain" (NOT freely available for public use); so they are not free to be taken without permission!

Some people write: "If you find an image that belongs to you and you do not want it displayed here, send me an e-mail and I'll remove it immediately."

That may appear to be a legitimate statement, but it shows a serious misunderstanding of copyright law. The law requires that the author of a web site, book, etc. ask permission of the copyright owner before displaying any copyrighted work.

The burden is on the copier to ask permission. It is not the duty of the copyright owner to cruise the internet, or check with Google Images, and ask authors to stop infringing a copyright. In fact, the copyright owner can file copyright infringement litigation immediately on discovering the unauthorized use of copyrighted material.

In summary, I want to emphasize that if you want to use an image, then you should be prepared to make a "monetary contribution" or a financial payment for permission to use it.

Anyone who wants to use any of the pictures should be willing to help defray some of the costs involved and by so contributing, make it possible to arrange for additional illustrations to be done. If you cannot afford to pay for any of the pictures, whatever the reason, then simply DO NOT use them! Just enjoy them where they are.

Thank you for respecting the property rights of this Word Info site.
