What is Copyright?
The pictures and other content 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 web content and 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.  These images are not royalty free and a fee is required for each specific usage.  All of our images have been invisibly watermarked so that they can be identified if used without permission.

Other Web Pages
Unfortunately you may not use our images in your web pages.  This could conflict with the interests of our many clients.  If, for instance, a corporation buys one of our pictures 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.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
