images are copyrighted by Martin Liebermann. This is my work, it
can not be used freely.
This does not
necessarily mean you have to pay for the use of my images. I earn money
from photography, but I also like to share my work. That's why I use
two types of licenses - either regular Copyright
or a Creative Commons license
of the type CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0.
All images and texts that are not licensed under CC are strictly copyrighted by me. You must FIRST
ask for a permission or pay a license
fee (royalty) BEFORE you are allowed to use them. Just contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Licensing is different with a Creative Commons license of
the CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0
type. This license grants you the permission to use my work
(without asking me for permission or paying a fee) under the following
BY - Author Attribution - Work attributed to www.martin-liebermann.de
NC - Non Commercial - Not used in any commercial context, for promotion or with intention to get revenues
SA - Share Alike - Shared and attributed with the same CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0 license
You are only allowed to use my
images for non-commercial purposes.
If you make money with my images by selling or displaying them (e.g. to
get ad revenues), if you use them for the promotion of your business,
product or service, you need to pay my license fee. This is also true for
promotional blogs, or facebook pages.
I am the author of an image, and it has cost me work, time and money to
create and publish it. I need to get author
credit. I also want customers and image users to find me.
That's why I always demand you visibly attribute my name or even better
my website adress to the image. If you don't want to do this, you are
either not allowed to use my work, or you have to pay me.
The same is true with the license
attribution. It also needs to be attributed to the image, in
order to always make clear under which conditions it can be shared.
Proper image credits can be
placed in a byline that reads "Author:
www.martin-liebermann.de - License: CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0" . Of course, I'm happy if you include a link.
