Title: Members - remove links to Wartski copyrighted materials
Post by: BobAtchison on January 13, 2012, 02:11:19 PM
The way the forum works when you insert an image into a posting you are create a link to an image that is on another server somewhere on the web.  Your image does not upload to the forum - it is simply a link.  We have no idea what the origin or any image is or who owns it.  We received several emails today from Geoffrey Munn of Wartski complaining about links to images or content from his book on Tiaras appearing in postings in the forum without his permission.

We do not know where these are and which images are specifically a problem.  We have asked Mr. Munn to give us links to the offending image links. We have written about copyright issues before and any posters who have links to Warski images must remove them immediately.  We ask all members to let us know if they see any Wartski image links in the forum so we can remove them.

Thank you
Bob Atchison

I'm sorry for my lack of information (I don't think I am one of the offenders, but it never hurts to be sure) but what is Wartski, exactly? It sounds like a museum, but I might (and probably am) wrong.

I am pretty sure that I haven't posted anything (picture-wise, anyway) on tiaras, but I am asking so that I will know when I am involved in these discussions in the future.

Thank you,
