All text and photos presented on these pages are copyright © 1998-2004 Andrew Dacey except where otherwise stated. All rights for reproduction, publication, and distribution are reserved except where indicated below.
Reproduction of my text or photos for personal use is permitted. The use can not be commercial in any way. The user is also not permitted to re-distribute my materials in any way. I would rather you refer friends to my site rather than send them copies of my materials. Any reproduction made by you is still subject to the terms of my copyright and may not be distributed or represented as your own work, or the work of any other person.
All photos and text may be freely used for educational purposes as long as the source is accurately credited (ie, a footnote and/or bibliographical reference). By properly crediting the photo or text you are also protecting yourself from accusations of plagiarism. Simply being a student does not qualify your use as educational. The material must be used for a specific educational purpose (ie, a student selling copies of my photos without my permission is not using my photos for educational purposes).
Also note that the academic world does not seem to have recognised the internet as a valid research medium (other than for collaboration purposes). As such, there does not seem to be any recognised system for referencing internet sources (urls for instance) in an academic document. Because of this, you may wish to contact me if you plan on using any of my text in an academic document. I may be able to point you in the direction of a more main stream (academically speaking) source of similar information.
Materials on these pages may not be used for non-profit purposes without my prior consent. I have no problem with my content being used for non-profit purposes and, if asked, will probably let you use the content for free. I simply put this clause in as their are some non-profit which go against my own personal beliefs. As such, I simply wish to have the right to refuse having my name or work attached to a cause which I disagree with. Any use of my photos or text must be accompanied with a credit to me (a simple "photo/text courtesy of Andrew Dacey" is sufficient).
Photos or text from these pages may not be used for commercial purposes without express prior consent. "Commercial use" includes, but is not limited to; publication in any media, advertising, and sale. Basically, I'm trying to make a living doing this. If you want to use any of my material for commercial use then contact me and we'll work something out. Just because I put all of my material online does not mean that I'm giving away my photos or text.
