Ownership of copyright
The graphics that you buy become your own property and
you do not have to link to this site when you use them.
However, there are some
restrictions. You are the owner of the copy that you
have paid for, but that doesn't mean that you own the
copyright of the writing tool, cartoon doll or other
graphics that is part of your animation/signature. Thus
you may not alter the graphic to do any derivative work.
Of course, if we have an
agreement that says that I sell you the copyright to
the image that is different. You can then do with the
image what you want. But this is only the case if we
have specifically agreed on it and you have paid the
price for the transferral of copyright ownership.
All graphics on these signature pages are Copyright
© 2000-10 Guðrun Jacobsen.
Most of the images have
been drawn by the webmistress, but some have been created
from photographs. A few were not originally created
by the webmistress, but permission has been obtained
to use them, they have been accommodated to the use
in these signatures, and all graphics created with them
are the copyright of the webmistress.
None of the graphics on
the signature page are being distributed for use by
other animators. I know that especially when you are
starting out it is tempting to copy every writing tool
that you see. But, please, don't do so. You will be
violating copyright laws if you choose to do so anyway.
In stead of copying the graphics found here I suggest
you learn how to draw your own. That is so much more
rewarding than using other people's work and it is not
as difficult as you might think initially. Just give
it a try.
