Copyright and Licensing

All  images are copyrighted  by Martin Liebermann. This is my work, it can not be used freely.

This does not necessarily mean you have to pay for the use of my images. I earn money from photography, but I also like to share my work. That's why I use two types of licenses - either regular Copyright or a Creative Commons license of the type CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0.

All images and texts that are not licensed under CC are strictly copyrighted by me. You must FIRST ask for a permission or pay a license fee (royalty) BEFORE you are allowed to use them. Just  contact me:

Licensing is different with a Creative Commons license of the
CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0 type. This license grants you the permission to use my work (without asking me for permission or paying a fee) under the following conditions:

BY - Author Attribution - Work attributed to
NC - Non Commercial - Not used in any commercial context, for promotion or with intention to get revenues
SA - Share Alike - Shared and attributed with the
same CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0 license

You are only allowed to use my images for non-commercial purposes. If you make money with my images by selling or displaying them (e.g. to get ad revenues), if you use them for the promotion of your business, product or service, you need to pay my license fee. This is also true for promotional blogs, or facebook pages.

I am the author of an image, and it has cost me work, time and money to create and publish it. I need to get author credit.  I also want customers and image users to find me. That's why I always demand you visibly attribute my name or even better my website adress to the image. If you don't want to do this, you are either not allowed to use my work, or you have to pay me.

The same is true with the license attribution. It also needs to be attributed to the image, in order to always make clear under which conditions it can be shared.

Proper image credits can be placed in a byline that reads "
Author: - License: CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0" . Of course, I'm happy if you include a link.
