Wondering if you can use images or content from Resalvaged for your own website, blog, book, or other projects? The world of copyright is confusing, so we’ve created this page to help you understand how our images, blog posts, and other content can be used.
Bottom Line: Ask Us First!
We are very happy to answer your questions on whether you might be able to use our content for your intended purpose. Whether you want to post something on your own blog or website or you are publishing a book, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Permission Request” as the subject line – it really is that simple!
We have this policy because there really is no “one-size-fits-all” blanket statement on the different things we post here because often share a mix of content that is licensed in different ways. Your intended usage will also play a big factor in what you may or may not be able to do with something you see on Resalvaged.
Here are some of the factors we consider when answering your questions:
Do we own the copyright of the work you want to use?
If an image or blog post is our own original, unique work where we own the copyright, we can often arrange for syndication and single-use licensing for commercial projects. We can also partner with you to create your own original unique content that is a win-win for us both!
If we do not own the copyright of the work you are interested in using, we cannot give you permission to use it. An example of this would be an article where we use a stock photo that we’ve licensed from someone else. While we can’t give you permission to use it, we’re always happy to point you in the right direction where you can contact the original copyright owner to get the proper permissions to use the works.
Before we can tell you if you will be able to use content from our website, it’s very important for us to first make sure we have the ability to grant you that permission!
What is Your Intended Purpose for the Content?
Once we’ve established that we are the original copyright owner of something and are able to convey permission, the second very important consideration we need to look at is how you plan to use the content. Here are some questions we will want to ask you:
- Is your intended use considered personal use, commercial use, or educational use?
- Will you be using the content in print or on the web?
- Are you mass-producing anything with the content?
- Would your usage of the content be in direct competition with our own website, products, or services?
- Do you need a high-resolution format of the item?
We’re happy to help you and answer any questions you may have – simply send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Permission Request”. It really is that easy to get permission!
