The Copyright on this web site is owned by Steve Thornton. You have the right to use
the images in very limited applications (see below), but not the right to distribute, sell or use the images in anyway you wish.
You may use the images in comps, layouts for in-house presentations, rough draft designs for your clients, story-boards or other
comps for yourself or your clients but only after asking permission first. That is the full extent of reproduction rights that are granted. For all other uses, you must contact Steve Thornton. If you can't
download the image you need for a comp etc., please contact me and I'll get it
to you. Educational use is permitted by students & teachers at no charge but may not be used in a textbook without payment. But again, please ask first, there will not be any problems, I just like to know the people interested in my work.
You may not use the images for advertising, brochures, editorial publications, public multimedia presentations or any other uses. You may not sell, publish, license or otherwise distribute any of the images without a "License To Use" from Steve Thornton or one of his authorized agents. You may not place copies of the images on electronic bulletin boards for general access.
When using images in comp layouts, remember that the copyright belongs to Steve Thornton.
Any use of the images beyond the limited uses set forth above constitutes a violation of the applicable copyright
law and may result in damages and costs being assessed against you. If your
design work involves manipulation of a photograph - retouching, shrinking,
stretching, darkening, lightening, tracing, copying, adding images to other
images or in any other way changing them - you may be creating a Derivative Work
of the original image (i.e. anything derived from one or several original(s))
in violation of copyright law, which again may result in damages and costs being
assessed against you.
Under copyright law, the creator of the original work also owns the
copyright to all works derived from the original. Therefore, if all or part
of your work is seen as having been derived from the original image(s),
you do not own the copyright to the derivative work, just as you do not own
the copyright to the original work.
NONE of the images found on this site nor the design of this entire web site are in the "Public Domain." Which means that it is all Copyrighted & is registered with the United States Copyright Office and as such if illegally used Legal Action will follow. All I am asking you is please do not steal. None of these images are free to use except for the very limited use above.
