#AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGG ! The #Manse #Oatlands #TASMANIA IMAGE POSTED BY OUR AMAZING LIKER : Denise Smith --------------------------------------- AMAZING TASMANIA is a page which encourages Amateur as well as Professional photographers to CLICK and SHARE their AMAZING work! So, if you think you have some awesome pictures of our beautiful Island then feel free to post and share. ---------------------------------------------- “FEEL FREE TO SHARE IT ON FACEBOOK OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM BUT DO NOT INFRINGE A COPYRIGHT." AMAZING TASMANIA is a page built on respect and recognition of Amazing Likers and photographers. We ask, rather we beg, that you remember this when you are posting work on AMAZING TASMANIA. If you make sure that all the works you upload consist of your very own creation and are not infringing on the intellectual property or publicity rights of another, you will help us foster the supportive and creative environment that is AMAZING TASMANIA. Please note: “Stealing other people’s work and passing it off as your own is against the law”. There are several international treaties that relate to intellectual property, but the laws are not uniform across the world. However, generally speaking. COPYRIGHT law protects the expression of an original idea recorded in a tangible form, such as artwork in the form of photographs or paintings and literary works in the form of poems or stories. TRADEMARK law protects the use of words, symbols, designs or logos that identify and distinguish a source of goods. PUBLICITY RIGHTS protect an individual’s name, image and likeness. Basically this means you can’t use someone else’s identity, to your commercial advantage, without their consent. A NOTE ON FAIR USE: You might be able to incorporate someone else's copyright or trademark into your own work, if you do it in such a way that that is considered "fair use" or in such a way that qualifies as another permissible use. However, please be aware that “fair use” typically applies in limited circumstances and isn’t the same as “freedom of speech”. Quite frankly “fair use” is a difficult concept, even for the experts, and the scope of “fair use” is different in different countries. So even if you think you’ve created a work covered by “fair use” or another permissible use, you should talk to an attorney prior to using it in connection with the AMAZING TASMANIA. While some uses might appear “fair” or permissible to you, we ask that you understand that AMAZING TASMANIA must act in accordance with its Notice and Takedown procedure when a report has been received. Additionally, certain works may be taken down without a specific report being received if we are otherwise alerted or aware of potential infringement issues. At “AMAZING TASMANIA” we place great importance on issues of copyright and intellectual property. Aside from the legal issues, respect and recognition of other photographers is a fundamental principle on which the AMAZING TASMANIA page is built. As more work (Photographs) are added to AMAZING TASMANIA, the job of managing content becomes increasingly more involved. If you become aware of any material on our page that you believe infringes your or any other person's copyright, please report this by messaging us on FACEBOOK. "Ultimately, you take full responsibility for the content you upload and display on AMAZING TASMANIA." Regards #ADMIN
