Foatiegriffy

Today I saw a auld foatie for sale o' ra ootside o' ra buildin' where Ah noo hae a wee office.

A think it's a auld postcerd blawed up and it's no' as sharp as Ah'd like it. (There's intriguin' wee features like a sign ootside wan windee, but it's sae grainy Ah cannae read it. A flagpole still ootside anither o' mah windees looks like it cuild in fact be a skinny barber's pole.)

Ah'll proably buy ra photie and scan it intae mah pooter, but is there ony wye o' makin' it clearer - bearin' in mind that it wiz done a hunner years ago yasin' equipment whit proably wisnae the brilliantest.

May I respectfully refer you to the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 and suggest a wee enlightening read.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright,_Designs_and_Patents_Act_1988

If ye look at yer postcard ye will nae doubt see a copyright symbol somewhere. So by the very act of "scanning it tae yer computer" you will probably be stealing the bread oot of somebody's mooth.

The music industry now hus copyright theft nearly oan the run. It's high time that "images" which can be considered tae be the same created intellectual property as "music" were offered the same privileges. That time will come eventually.

Bear in mind that anything that hus a copyright symbol on it or next tae it, even if ye BUY it as a postcard - it's NO yours to use, as and how ye like. Ye then need tae pay or negotiate to purchase RIGHTS TO USE.

It's actually nae different tae burgling somebody's hoose, because ye're basically stealin their property. And that's doon in legal black and white.

Rant ower.
