'Using other people's material online. So you found a great image, icon or cursor and you want to share it with the world.
Do you have the right to do that?'

Yes, you have the liberty, not 'right', to do so. Sharing is not copying or 'using' and is not a crime. Ownership and royalties are protected to the owner. Fair usage/sharing is under the veil of Creative Commons, which is why it was created. Do you know how many permission requests there would be if not so? The web differs in its definitions and applications of copyright and trademark. Pirate Bay, Dare TV, SoundCloud, MySpace, etc. have exampled this platform. If you remember Napster, they were the first platform to redefine sharing vs. exploitation. Search engines are public domain. They are not privatized. The internet is public not private.

There is a correct, universal manner/standard to share work, whether it's art, music, movies, literature, knowledge, material and such, and it's simple really: Credit and link the original source, don't claim ownership or profit from the material and follow the regulations abiding to the subject. Respect the privilege.

Any legal institution will warn, if you don't want your work viewed, shared or public, don't put it on/in the webs.

Yes you do have the right to use it.
also they put it on the internet which the world can see.
plus if you don't want someone to copyright then don't put it on the web.
also if you are going to put a piture one the web you must understand that people may copyright it.
i agree with AJaxx the internet is public not private.
so if you don't want to take the risk of your wokr been copyrighted
then don't put it on the internet in the first place.
by taking a image and making it into a cursor you do own the curosr
not the image and the same with an icon.

@ The male boss

It is obvious that you have absolutely no clue as to what Ajaxx was saying.
You do not have the right to copyright anything you did not create.
If you did not create the image it does not belong to you.
Plain and simple. There is no room for debate. The law is clear and you are clueless.

Please educate yourself before you claim to know what you are talking about.

You may want to start by looking up the word copyright .

@ Ajaxx

Thank you for clarifying the correct manner in which sharing is most likely appropriate.

Some people read what they want into what they read,then again, some people just cannot read!

i din't say the image belongs to you i said the cursor does it two difrent files
so therfore it diffrent.
if i take a image of the web and make it into a cursor i don't own the image
but i do own the cursor.
so if you don't want to take the risk of your work been copyrighted
then don't put it on the internet in the first place.

No. You obviously still do not understand anything about copyrights.
An image is granted a copyright when the artist creates it. A copyright denotes ownership. No one else can use the image unless you allow them permission to do so no matter where they happen to find your image. This changes if you the creator donate the image to the public domain.

A copyright is not a copy, they are two completely different words with vastly different meanings. Please use a dictionary and learn the difference.

Additionally, you should endeavor to learn more about copyrights and stop relying on what you think you know because you are wrong. Just go learn what a copyright is and why we have them.

You do not have the right to use any image you did not create yourself. Just because someone shares their image online does not make it public domain and it does not give you the right to use the image.

If you use my copyrighted image without permission, for instance, to create a cursor you own nothing. The image is the focus of ownership and without my image you would have no cursor. A cursor file is just another format of an image. It could just as easily be an icon file or a bitmap or any other image format. Just because you change the image format does not make the image belong to you.

If you were to stick my image on your bike, a separate object, you would still own the bike but a cursor is not like a bike. A cursor is not a separate object it is the image in another form. There is a difference.

Ask someone else like Vlasta if you think I am incorrect. Ask one of your teachers at school. Look it up online.

There is always going to be a risk in sharing your creations. Some people do not follow the laws and they misuse your work. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Educate yourself.

I don't go to school cdl

cdl (2016-10-20 04:08:27):

That could explain a lot.

If that is all you got from my last comment perhaps you should read it again.

I did go but I left school after my exams

cdl (2016-10-21 08:20:23):

Yes, I expected as much.

You know, the internet can be quite an informative educational tool.
I do suggest you take advantage of that.

I don't think The male boss cares about any license. He just uses this one all the time: Release to Public Domain license.

cdl (2016-11-09 02:39:43):

You have no right to talk about anyone when you repeatedly break rules and upload copyrighted material to the RW website pretending that you created the work.

The license used on the RW website has little bearing on the situation when the material is stolen in the first place.

Your comment has nothing to do with the subject or previous comments here.
