In order to use a photograph from the Genuki Yorkshire* site,
you need the permission of the copyright owner.
In the first place, you will need to email me (Colin Hinson) and
I will forward your email to the relevant person (if it is not
myself), and you will be contacted by that person by email.
If you wish to use my photographs, you must ask first.
Failure to do so may well result in your being billed for royalties.
Photographs for use on Web sites, Hardcopy, CDroms etc.:
Permission will normally be given for the free use of church
photographs on web sites of the relevant churches or sites associated
with the churches, but you must ask first.
If the photograph is not mine (Colin Hinson), then
I will forward any request to the copyright owner.
Please be aware that I sell images as part of my business,
and so if you are looking to publish my photographs on the web,
in hardcopy or on CDrom or any other means, then I will expect
to be paid royalties as is normal in the publishing world. Exceptions
to this are:
Websites that have password restricted access where the password
will only be known to a few people e.g 20 or less
Where only very few books are published (e.g. 20 or less)
Where only very few CDs are made (or copies thereof) e.g.
20 or less.
You are very welcome to use a link instead of the photograph,
but you must link to the Genuki html page containing
the photograph and not either directly to the photograph or in
such a manner that the photograph appears on your web page.
If you wish to pay for the use of the photograph(s) please
go to my charges
In order to process a request to use a photograph, I need:
The name of the person holding the copyright
The file name of the "Frame" around the photograph
complete with the Riding letters - e.g. ERY/EllertonPriory.html
or an accurate description of the church ("the church at
Wakefield" is not helpful!). To get the file name, you can
switch back to the page you came from by selecting the other
browser window (on the task bar on a PC) and then copy and pasting
the name from the address bar - switch back here using the task
A detailed description of what you want to use
the photograph for, e.g.
use of a photograph once only in a single family tree
use of a photograph in several family tree books/CDroms.
use of a photograph in a book to be published.
Whether or not money will change hands in exchange for
the item in which the photograph will appear. i.e. are you bearing
the expense yourself, or are you being recompensed for the item
(even if "non-profit" making)?
You can but please make sure you have read all of
the above first.
Thank you very much. You can kill off this window by pressing
the "X" at the top right corner. This will put you back
where you came from.
