I have been getting numerous emails
from both sites about the borrowing of my images,etc. I find this
very courteous and respectful, but having to reply to each and
every one of these is becoming very time consuming for me. It
takes time away from me getting new stuff up on my sites. So,
here's a page that hopefully will clarify what you can and cannot
borrow from my sites.
Rules for borrowing images:
You may borrow up to four images
from each of my sites as long as they do NOT fit in the categories
below. And of course, with ANY images borrowed, you must credit
where you got them. That means you must either place my site's
name and /or link on the very SAME page that the pic is being
used on. Most images that I will allow you to borrow are located
in the image galleries of my sites and any that I specifically
say you may borrow such as link banners,etc. I will also specify
in spots where I may have gotten permission to borrow pics,etc.and
will usually have a link to the site I borrowed it from. You need
to ask the webmaster of that particular site to borrow that pic
in question just as I did.
- Pics that you can NOT borrow (so don't even ask):
- -fanart of any sort (you
must specifically ask the artist's permission to borrow such)
- -my title and page banners
- -my "modified"
pics (those are pics that I have altered or collaged together
for some special reason)an example is kinda like the one shown
at the top of this page or on the bottom of my nav bars that
are on the sides of my sites.
- -doujinshi images
- If you are unsure of a pic,
then email me about it. Mention exactly which pic it is so I
can tell you yes or no. My email addy is on the main pages of
my sites and in the "Contact Info" sections of my sites.
- Rules for borrowing fanfics:
- Like fanart, you may NOT borrow
fanfics without the expressed permission of the author. If it's
me, then email me and let me know which fanfic it is you are
interested in. I like sharing my stories with other fansites,
but ONLY if specific rules are followed. I will ask you to give
me the url of the site you wish to place the story on and that
you obviously mention my name and link to my site. There's too
many people stealing fanfics and calling them their own, so I'm
very paranoid about lending my stories out unless the rules above
- Rules for borrowing information:
- The information about the series,etc.
is technically for all to use. Most of which I gathered from
source books and magazines. I know some other DBZ sites are very
fussy about the borrowing of information from their sites, but
honestly, it's not their information anyway. Since they do not
own DBZ,etc. then they got their information from another source
too. They can't claim it as their own. Only those who own rights
to the series can do such. But still, common respect is to ask.
I give you permission right here and now to use character info,show
info,etc. from my site if you wish.But that doesn't mean word
for word (no cut & pasting!) or the taking of ALL my info.
A common courtesy however is to respect the effort the work someone
put into researching and gathering that info so you could see
it. So, again credit where you got the info from either by link
or mentioning the site name on the page you use it on. One must
do that in school when doing research papers, and the same rule
technically applies to web info too.
- That's about it for now. I'll
add/modify this page as needed. But again, any questions, comments,etc.
may be referred to me at email@example.com
