On the Subject of Copyrights

Copyrights are pretty easy when it comes to tagging. If it's not yours, and you don't include a copyright on it, you may not use it. I see this in so many places that it's not funny.

I see a lot of people these days using strictly PTU artists. This way, there's just no question as to if the artist has revoked usage or if the artist is usable at all.

There are people who think that if the image is in a scrap kit, then it's ok to use. THIS IS NOT TRUE! I've seen a ton of kits that include stuff that is clearly not copyright compliant. Many people just don't take into consideration that scrap artists may or may not be copyright compliant. As taggers, this is extremely important to know.

Some scrap artists buy the elements for their kits, buy a script to create elements for the kit, and then there are those who tube items themselves and put it in their kits. The last type of scrap artist is the type to steer clear of.

I've also seen a lot of misted backgrounds on various tube sites and these are definitely no-no's. They are not copyright compliant, and people tend to not take the backgrounds in mind as being under the copyright law as well.

You are required as a hobbyist to comform to these copyright laws.

Before adding something to your tag, you better know where each element came from, if it's ok to use, and if it would violate any copyright law. Plain and simple.
