Photographs (The Use of)

Throughout the pages and posts within this blog (www.brainypintsizer.com) and on the creator/owner/manager/author’s related Twitter handle (@brainypintsizer) and Pinterest boards (http://www.pinterest.com/brainypintsizer), the incorporation/use of photos are prevalent.

Regardless of whether or not a copyright notice is visible on a photograph (i.e. as a watermark), photos taken by the Brainy Pint Sizer are the property of the Brainy Pint Sizer.

There is the saying, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”  Ah, yes and no. 

Want to use/re-use/re-print/re-publish (or whatever you want to call it) on your website or in any publication, printed, video, digital or otherwise?  Contact me.

  • Under no circumstances are photos to be used for commercial purposes. 
  • Under no circumstances are photos to be used for resale. 
  • Under no circumstances are photos to be used by the “media”, whether legitimate journalist or “citizen” journalist/blogger, et. al. — without an expressed written request and approval by the Brainy Pint Sizer to do so. 
  • Under no circumstances are the photos to be used for or in pornography. 

When it doubt — do not use the photos. The practices above are strictly forbidden. 

Under the federal rules and practices of copyright and trademark in the United States of America, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), as well as the World Intellectual Property Association (WIPO) and the International Trademark Association (INTA), unless you own it — which you don’t — you play by the rules.  Do not conveniently forget to seek approval or attribute.

The Brainy Pint Sizer does not take kindly to dishonesty and theft. 

Sincerely,
Brainy Pint Sizer
