40k and fantasy pics.

Post by rokassan on Mon Oct 20, 2008 12:41 pm

Being a public forum and not profiting from it can we use pics that are copywrited material?

My understanding is that as long as it is for "educational" purposes we are allowed to use some photos of things. Obviously there is no issue with us posting our own photos of our figs and battles, etc.

As for offical GW pics, I'm not really sure.

I would figure we are advertising for them and of course we are not profiting from their work. We are educating gamers and potential gamers.

I don't see why we couldn't.
I can put a footer on the forum and portal page with the usual disclaimer, however I think the chances of a GW official person popping by and starting a legal issue is somewhere between slim and none.

As long as we don't put up photos from source material including points or articles (like their painting guides/etc.) it should be fair game.

Copyright laws are tricky, but I wouldn't worry about them too much as long as you're not sharing files of scanned stuff or posting said stuff. Also, we're clearly not making any money nor intend to make any money, and anything we do here only helps them sell instead of detracts.
