Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQ) about Copyright

Are the images on the Lyubomir Klissurov web site protected by copyright?

YES. I hold legal copyrights to the images and materials available online. I include a copyright notice on the web page to protect MY copyright to the digital files that I create.


How can I use the images I see?

Viewers of this web site are allowed to browse images, but only for personal use. Any other use (e.g., making multiple copies, displaying images publicly, placing on a web page or redistributing files electronically) requires express written permission from me. Commercial use of any image or material here without such permission would constitute copyright infringement and may infringe other rights.

I know I can browse through the images and download them, but can I print them?

YES. As long as your printout is for personal, non-commercial, non-public use.

Can I send images or image files to others?

NO. You can browse, download, or print images for personal, non-commercial use, but you cannot distribute copies of images or image files or other material to anyone else for any reason.

Can I make multiple copies of an image?

NO. You can browse, download, or print images for personal, non-commercial use, but making multiple copies of an image would constitute infringement.

Can I play with the images; can I alter them?

YES, but only for personal, non-commercial, non-public use. You cannot add or use our images in part or in whole or combined with other images for commercial or public display. This would constitute infringement.

What is non-commercial use?

Generally, non-commercial use means a use in which nothing of value changes hands between you and someone else.

If I send images to my friends for free, there's no money involved. Why can't I do that?

First, you are providing them with something of value. Second, the use must be both non-commercial and personal. If you distribute images to others, the use is no longer personal. Third, you would be making multiple copies of the images, which is not allowed

Is scholarly research non-commercial? Can I use images in my research paper?

YES, but only if there is no commercial component to the research and only if the resulting research is not published, reproduced or distributed to anyone. So you could incorporate an image into a research paper prepared for school, but not if the paper were going to be published or archived or microfilmed or distributed in any way.

Can I use images in my comps (layout presentations)?

YES. We encourage the use of our online, low-resolution images for comps. But use in any final product requires a license from Lyubomir Klissurov. I also have larger comp images available for making higher quality comp presentations on a fee basis.

I want to make commercial use of an image; what do I need to do?

Contact to Lyubomir Klissurov for more information. You may also e-mail to discuss licensing possibilities.
