Pictures used on this site!


Not all pictures on this site are mine. I always tries to give credit to the photographer and
write his/her name on the picture. Sometimes however I do not know who has taken the
picture, but I will still publish it if I think it has educational value for this site. If you find
pictures you do not want me to publish here, please let me know. This site only has
information and pictures about the smurfs. It has nothing to sell, no adverts etc.
So no commercial purpose at all. The only purpose is sharing knowledge about the smurfs.

When it comes to educational or newsworthy information I follow what I call "fair use".

" Distinguish Between Commercial and Editorial Use – In most countries you may
publish any photography (not obscene) for newsworthy, editorial or journalistic
purposes. For such occasions, you as a photographer are protected by freedom of
press, or “fair use”.
To elaborate on “fair user” further, the "fair use" exemption to (U.S.) copyright law
was created to allow things such as commentary, parody, news reporting, research
and education about copyrighted works without the permission of the author.
However, such practice should never harm the commercial value of the work.
When your photography subjects are people, you should take their “rights of
publicity” into consideration. Editorial usage however is not classified as
personal or commercial beneficial usage."
