The use of any images or other materials included herein, in whole or in part,
for any purpose other than for the private purpose of the user, including,

What is © Copyright?
The images on this website are known as "intellectual property".
In law, they are hardly different from other forms of property (such as
your computer), as the creation of images also requires personal skill,
equipment, time and money. To take and distribute images without consent
is a form of theft and is therefore illegal. The images on this
Internet web site publication are not royalty free and a fee is required
for each specific usage. All of the images have been visibly and invisibly watermarked so that
they can be identified if used without permission, whether whole or in part. International
law now permits substantial penalty charges for infringement of copyright.
Other Web Pages
Unfortunately you may not use any of the images in your web pages without express written
permission as this constitutes publishing
the images and could conflict with the interests of our many clients. If, for instance, a
corporation buys a picture for a specific purpose which conflicts with
your website, then the corporation could take legal action against you.
We have to say "no" in order to protect you and our clients.
Web Site Links
As an alternative to using the pictures on your website, why not create a
link to this site? Please let us know if you decide to create a link.
