Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Bad CO, Jul 13, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Bad CO

    No more using photos of people in your signature blocks without their prior permission. This will be rigidly enforced.
  2. how can you get permission, isn't she
  3. What do you do if they are deceased? :?
  4. Can we take them from other sites on the internet?
    If they're already out there?

    Use the pic.
    Once someone's gone the pic is open, unless the copyright is owned by someone else, the snapper or agency for example.

    Oh, and it's legally impossible to slander or libel the deceased.

  6. but what about mine???
    Lippy do you have Johhny's fone number hun???
  7. Even if she is dead, which i doubt, the photographer still has copyright. Even if the person is deceased and took the photo themself you still normally need permission from next of kin,
  8. If you look at CO's post they are admin.

    their site,

    It has got nothing to do with legality or otherwise it is now an arsse rule...

    live long and prosper :lol:
  9. then we can't use ANY pictures?
    other than those we take OURSELVES?
    So NO pictures AT ALL?

    Can we have a LITTE more clarification on this please?

  10. Thats what Bad CO said, how much more clarification is required?
  11. i think clarification on my first point CC.
    Can we use pictures taken from the web?
    film stars, sporting hero's?
    Comedy characters?
  12. Yes, you may use my pic BBC
  13. Grrrrrrrrr Corps, gaydar, baby!
    Send stunningly good looking man pics! :wink:
  14. Well, normally with all the above you are then infringing on copyright laws anyway.....

    I think the rule stands at no useage of other, non-celebraty, member's photo's unless given expressed permission from the person in the photo. It is more PERSEC than anything else.....

    Most film stars, sporting heros and comedy characters are already well known, so PERSEC is out of the window, but as i said, then you start to touch on copyright issues.
  15. Errrrrrrrrrrrr how do I get permission from an Aardvark?
