Copyright Notice

from Bernard Picton
All the text and pictures in this Web site are copyright 1985-1996 Bernard Picton.

They may be used as follows:

Non-commercial Web use of photos

If you have a personal home page or non-commercial Web service, please feel free to use my photographs with hyperlinked credit. Acceptable HTML is
photographs courtesy <a href="http://www.pictonb.freeserve.co.uk/">Bernard Picton</a>
That way people know who took the picture and also can find my on-line copyright statement. You do not need to pay for usage. Just build the best Web site you can and give it back to the community.

Commercial Web use of photos

If you would like to use my pictures on a commercial page, then please do the following:
  1. register the URL with me (sending email is fine)
  2. add the hyperlinked credit as above

Use of photos and Web pages in print

If you are doing a story, book, or CD-ROM about the World Wide Web, please feel free to include a page or two under the following conditions:
  1. screen captures must be made from a computer with a 24-bit color video board. (Machines with 8-bit cards produce distorted images and colors.) I will supply dupe PhotoCDs or traditional transparencies for reproduction upon request.
  2. the URL must be legible in the capture or separately printed in a caption
  3. a small credit must be printed reading "Web page courtesy Bernard Picton (bernard.picton.um@nics.gov.uk)" or "Photos courtesy Bernard Picton (bernard.picton.um@nics.gov.uk)"
  4. send me email informing me of the usage and/or Snail Mail a copy of the finished item to Bernard E. Picton, Zoology Department, Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, BT9 5AB, Northern Ireland, UK.
If you simply want to use my photographs to illustrate an article that is not about my Web pages, e.g., you just want a nudibranch photo to go with a story on nudibranchs, then that is commercial usage, you are not covered by any of these blanket licenses, and you should send me email with a proposal. An exception to this is free publications put out by non-commercial organizations; you can use whatever you want with credit as above.


I've copied much of this copyright declaration from Philip Greenspun in the belief that he has the right attitude.
