Copyright Notice

All text and pictures on this web site are Copyright 1999, 2000, 2001 David Paris. Modification of any document or picture without explicit consent is prohibited by law.

Printing of Photographs for Personal Use

If you enjoy one of my pictures well enough to print it and place it somewhere, go right ahead. Keep in mind that any modification to the image is strictly prohibited, and the copyright must stay on the image under penalty of law.

If you would like a museum-quality print from my original slides or negatives, please visit the prints page for information on ordering.

Non-Commercial Web Use of Photos

If you would like to place one of my photographs on your personal or non-commercial web site, you may use one of the small/thumbnail (192x128) sized images only, and you must provide hyperlinked credit. Acceptable HTML is:
photographs courtesy <a href="http://www.rdrop.com/~dbp/">David Paris</a>
That way people know who took the photograph, and also can come to my site for my full copyright notice, and information on the picture.

Commercial Web Use of Photos

If you would like to use one of my images on a commercial web site, you must do the following:
  1. Email me requesting permission to use the photograph. Include within your email the type of page, and reason you wish to use the photo.
  2. Add next to my image the hyperlinked credit, as explained above
You do not need to pay for usage, either, but I reserve the right to refuse any site I do not wish to be associated with.

Use of Photos or Documents in Print (Commercial Usage)

If you wish to use one of my photographs in any public document, over any medium (CD-Rom, magazine, etc.), your usage is not covered by any of the above licenses, and you should send me email with a proposal. The only exception to this is free publications put out by non-commercial organizations; you can use whatever you wish, as long as you contact me in advance, and supply proper credit.

If there is any question as to the use of my photographs then it is probably commercial use and it is best to contact me by email describing what you wish to do.
