Fandom <br />strikes me as a little creepy when it gets over-protective of <br />those they admire.<br /><br />Or maybe there are Ollie Records lawyers about! :huh: <br /><br />As far as this site goes, none of your users (as far as I can <br />tell) are able to post images on your site. They can post <br />links to an image on another site, sure... but it would be <br />counterproductive for Ollie Record Productions to hold you <br />responsible for the content of another site. <br /><br />If they do, for some reason, have an issue with an in-progress <br />line-art logo on my Geocities site, I would consider it corporate<br />bullying if they chose to make it your issue, rather than do the<br />proper thing and contact Geocities (or myself) directly.<br /><br />What kind of images did you get 'dinged' for in the past? I mean,<br />were they reproductions you posted on the site, or images a<br />user linked to elsewhere?</span></span>

Flaming, I understand what you are saying, but Jeff Wayne and the people/companies that represent him do take care of themselves and get involved with any websites or people who use the artwork, video clips or sound clips without permission or a license.<br /><br />You have said in a post you were thinking of using images for a fan site you were doing. I was just giving you a friendly warning about the strict copyright (other companies are more relaxed) they have and just asking you not to post the images on the forum.<br /><br />Don't take offense, but I am going to close this thread. If you wish to email me then feel free.<br /><br />
