    Speaking of copyrights, I've been wondering about using images on message boards. Example: suppose pretty picture of a boat is on WebSiteA, with copyright notice. And the URL for that picture is used to show the image in a post on a message board on WebSiteB. Would showing the picture on another site like that be considered a copyright issue?

    This is what I have learnt from this cyber-world;

    Linking the URL so the picture is seen on Website B is not allowed, but showing the URL as a link to click on is allowed, unless the URL gives you direct access to a pass-word protected site...

    Most pictures are copyrighted, but I guess that you can copy yacht pictures from the builders own sites, since they are there for advertising. But always read what is written on the site about reproduction and downloading of material.

    Apart from the advertising, all content in magazines is normally copyrighted. You can read this in a column in every issue.

    Pictures belongs to the photographer and the magazine is paying for the publication. If you want to use the picture you´ll probably need a permission from both the magazine and the photographer.

    If the magazine is on the web, you can publish the URL for us to click on, but no hotlinks where the content is visible at another site, like YachtForums.

    With ads and brochures I really don´t know if the deal between the photographer and the company includes that pictures can be scanned and posted on the web by third parties. This is something that I think will be allowed in the future as long as it is clear from where the pictures are taken.

    I have scanned a few articles from older magazines that is not available any longer (printed before the web came around) and I think this could be OK if you mention the source and it is published on an enthusiast forum like this...

    But if you are not sure of the specific rules, send an e-mail to Carl before posting it here...
