Our Use Of Potentially Copyrighted Work
In the course of receiving news releases from companies, we receive licensed artwork, text and photography which is intended for publication on our news site. Images submitted and displayed to us in the form of a news-release represent an authorization/ license to display such images on our site. In the original news release we generally indicate this by adding: “Image/ Photograph Courtesy Of [Company Name]” or “Image via News Release by [Company Name]”. We may use these pictures in other articles or work and; if doing so will generally refer to them as: “Image/ Picture From File”. Pictures may be used in educational articles or to convey concepts of safe aircraft operations.
Naturally and in the course of daily business, readers send us images for featuring on Sundays or submit textual content with the request for publication as a guest- or opinion editorial. Generally, we attempt to verify that all images and texts which are submitted to our publication, were in fact taken/ written by the person submitting the artwork.
Ultimately, we have no way of verifying legal ownership of the submitted work. As such we work diligently with persons or entities who can state reasonable case that their legal and/or ownership rights may have been violated by our use and display of such work. If such complaint is received via Email, we generally promptly react and accommodate the request for take-down. We do however reserve the right to replace text or images under request for take-down with a full disclosure of the entities request. Generally, we refuse to respond in amicable fashion to unsubstantiated legal threats, insults or other attacks. Calling us is not sufficient means to communicate a grievance.
As a publishing outlet, the lack of support from industry players and companies within the seaplane industry does not afford us the privilege to pay guest editors for submitted work or images, as is often seen in print publications. As such we do not enter or become and exclusive contractual partner of persons or entities submitting pictures and articles and are thereby not necessarily the actual perpetrator to a potential plagiarism/ copyright claim. In other words, potential violations of persons or entities rights is incidental in nature and not performed intentionally or with malicious intent.
We will work with persons and entities claiming substantiated grievances to bring suit or launch legal action against persons or entities which actually committed the violation or tort. Rest assured, Seaplanemagazine.com is capable of legal self representation (pro se representation in court) and familiar with the legal process of fact finding, discovery and execution of legal conflicts. Rest equally assured that raising legal action against Seaplanemagazine.com or its authors or representatives will afford swift and radically transparent as well as immediate editorial attention on the front page of our website. Consider any and all privacy and privilege notices submitted via Email disclaimed, invalid and obsolete in the course of this action.
We remind readers and entities submitting pictures or textual content to us, to always include the following information together with all submitted artwork:
- Date and Location
- Name of photographer
- Request for publication
- Indicate if previously published and where
