Re: What if I could make avatars for David?
I like those a lot...
some are a little fuzzy...
just because someone asked me in a PM... I'll elaborate on what I mean by respect peoples copyrights.
Copyright is a legal status in which the copyright holder has rights as to where information can be used,
e.g Mcgraw Hill holds copyrights on a lot of books.. they specify in their copyrights that you can't photocopy their books.
anyone who creates something, (and I mean truely creates) owns that item, and the associated copyright, and hence the rights to say how and where it can be used...
Hence the EULA license on software, even when you buy a disc, you only have a right to use, not to copy, not to sell, not to disassemble
some poeple choose to waive their copy right and release something free to everyone.
others chose to waive most, but not all of their copyrights, (i.e you can use, but not for profit).
When I say respect peoples copyrights I mean that some people will ask you not to copy their images.
you should respect this and not copy their images...
some ask you not to copy their images if you are going to use them to bring the company into disrepute.
so don't make an avatar of a windows flag with the word sux and expect it to be used!!!
Others ask you not to use their logos in a commercial capacity, (which may be a snag since this forum generates add revenue towards it's running costs!) (-but not a profit as far as I know).
lastly some ask you not to copy their logo for uses that have nothing to do with their products...
like the apache foundation allow you to use their powered by apache logo on sites that are powered by apache, but not on sites that are not powered by apache. you can use it to mark apache expertise, but not general web sense...
do you see what i mean?
I.e the apache logo cannot be made into an avatar because it has no use for being here, hence it contravienes the copyrights to make it an avatar.
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
