Sarkozy visit

The president of France, Nicholas Sarkozy, has arrived at the White House. With all the French furnishings, let’s hope he doesn’t ask for any of the furniture “back.”

  1. Poor Georgie. He looks like he boo-booed. Probably did, come to think of it.
    Anyway, I’ve been waiting for an open post to ask a question!
    I know *nothing* about copyright, etc. so yes I’m dumb, which is why I’m asking…
    I want to use your South Face picture as my computer wallpaper. Do I need your permission to use it? When DOES one need permission to use a picture from the Internet? Can I copy pics and put them on Facebook, for example?
    I am not savvy here. This is my first experience at communicating with others except by private e-mail, and I wanna do it right!!
    Thanks!
    I know open post means a green light for anything, so I’ve learned at least that much.
    I love your South Face pic because the cloud above the WH looks like a giant genie boiling from the roof, leaning over, arms spread wide.
    Yes I’m completely sober so don’t ask.

  2. I believe if you used a picture someone else owns as a wallpaper that’s not a big deal unless you try to sell it online and make some $$$.

    In general people don’t mind if you show photos on the web that belong to them unless you start selling access to the photos or the website. The law is you shouldn’t do it at all, but owners don’t always get upset . . . it just depends on what you’re doing with them.

    Derek for instances makes every effort to give credit in his photos.

  3. That makes sense to me, and thanks! I don’t want to profit, I just want to enjoy and share, but I wasn’t sure how it worked.

  4. I believe late at night the French prez is sneaking around the residence replacing the priceless furniture with perfect replicas.

  5. Wingnut is right. You can do anything you like with images for your own personal use. Posting them on the Internet, tho, can infringe on the owner’s right to profit from selling an image, whether or not you profit from it yourself (which is why you can’t share MP3s of other people’s song). Of course, practically everything I post on the Web of my own I offer for anyone to use for any purpose for free, but I don’t make my living as a photographer. Much of what I use on this site is either public domain (expired copyright or created by a federal employee) or used under “fair use” rules (I don’t profit from it, it’s for educational purposes, etc.).

  7. However, if Time or Getty or the tourist who posted her photo on Webshots asked me to take down a photo of theirs that I’ve used, I would certainly do so.

  8. Thanks for all this good info. I’m using South face pic because as I said I like the genie coming out of the roof.
