    Exclamation using magazine photos on this site

    Both Tomart's and Lee's have been bent out of shape in the past when people scan photos out of their magazines and use them on the web without persmission. It is their copyrighted information.

    I advise you against doing this as it could lead to legal troubles for both the original poster and possibly this board.

    Does that include links? As well as posting the actual pics? Just curious.

    I would think linking to something on their site would be ok but reproducing stuff out of their magazine should be avoided.

    I work for a newspaper and have written three books.
    So I know the inís and outís of posting stuff like this.
    Once the article has been printed, it becomes public domain.
    As long as you mention the source (IE: Leeís Toy Review, Issue 143, Page 7).
    Otherwise every website in the world would be in jeopardy of a lawsuit.

    I guess I never thought about it, but I suppose your right. As soon as you cite a source, your good...

    Guess its like writting a research paper, cite your sources and copyright infringement no longer holds...

    i agree as long as the ref. the mag, i don't see where this is a problem. no one buys lee's and tomats for the pictures, its the articles man...the articles...

    i guess we should take down the filecard scans and hasbro brochure scans also....

    Look, I am just suggesting you not do it as both those magazines have been known to throw a fit in the past.

    I am not trying to say I know the law or what can or can't be done.

    I am just saying they can be bent out of shape is all and it may save you trouble not to post pics on the web from their magazine.
