Copyright Notice

From Michael Anttila

All the text and pictures on this Web server are copyright 2004-2023 Michael Anttila.

Here are the terms of my blanket license...

Printing of photos for personal use

If you want a copy of one of my pictures to stick on your fridge or use in a school project or cover a crack in your wall, then please feel free to print anything you like from my site. For the best quality reproduction, please email me and I can usually provide you with a high resolution file suitable for printing.

Non-commercial Web use of photos

If you have a personal home page or non-commercial Web service, please feel free to use my photographs with a hyperlinked credit on every page where one of my photos appears. Acceptable HTML is

    photographs courtesy <a href="">Michael Anttila</a> 
That way people know who took the picture and also can find my on-line copyright statement. You do not need to pay for usage. Just build the best Web site you can and give it back to the community.

Commercial Web use of photos

Using my pictures on a commercial page requires my express permission for each photo used. Please contact me to request permission. If permission is granted, please add the hyperlinked credit as above (on every page where a photo appears). In most cases I will allow use of the photo free of charge, though I reserve the right to ask for a fee in certain circumstances.

Note: remember that most of the pictures of people on my pages are not model-released. Advertising usage of photos (e.g., brochures, catalogs, print ads) is very different from editorial usage of photos (e.g., newspaper and magazine articles, books). You cannot use pictures in advertising (e.g., an on-line product brochure or anything else that is selling) without getting a model release from any person whose image is recognizable in the photo. You might also have problems if an image contains a recognizable physical property, e.g., Disneyland. One of the reasons advertisers pay $1000+ for images from stock agencies is that those agencies have generally already gotten the relevant releases.

Use of photos and Web pages in print

If you're a musical group and want to use one of my photos for a CD cover, you can do so at no charge with a "Cover photo courtesy" credit in the liner notes. If convenient, please mail a copy of the finished product to me. (Contact me for my address.)

If you are doing a story, book, or CD-ROM about the World Wide Web, please feel free to include a page or two of mine under the following conditions:

  1. the URL is legible in the capture or separately printed in a caption
  2. a small credit is printed reading "Photos courtesy Michael Anttila"
  3. send me email informing me of the usage
  4. mail me a copy of the finished item, if appropriate. (Contact me for my address.)

Other uses

Any use not covered by this copyright notice requires my express permission for each photo used. Please contact me.
Thanks to Philip Greenspun and John A. Lind for template copyright notices.
