This is the obligatory page of legalese that covers my copyright, but don’t let it put you off unless for some reason you were thinking of nicking my photos, in which case I’ll release the hounds.
The short, easy-to-read version is: no matter who you are, such as a client trying to avoid purchasing digital files by downloading them from my blog or portfolio, or a designer looking for ‘free’ images to use in a project, the images on this site are exclusively mine (except where explicitly noted in writing), and copying them from this site in any way is theft and a breach of copyright. You’ll end up paying me a LOT more in lawyers fees and penalty fees than if you’d simply licensed or purchased the image legally.
The legalese version is: All images on this site, unless noted otherwise, are the exclusive property of Owen Billcliffe and are protected under UK and International Copyright laws. The images may not be reproduced, copied, transmitted or manipulated without the written permission of Owen Billcliffe. These copyright laws impose substantial penalties for infringement.
The use of any images or other materials included herein, in whole or in part, for any purpose other than the private purpose of viewing them online, including, but not limited to, copying, reproduction, publication by any means, including “hotlinking”, storage in a retrieval system (other than internet browser), manipulation (digital or otherwise), or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, is expressly prohibited without the written permission of Owen Billcliffe.
All artistic and moral rights of the author are hereby asserted.
