Could I post from a book I published or is that still infringement on the publisher who has a right to a percentage as well? :?

Very late in reply to this, but what you ask for is done every day dozens of times on modeling forums. Myself included.

If someone posts a picture from a book to discuss or a paragraph to demonstrate a point, there has never been an issue to my knowledge. This discussion is what fuels more sales, and the publishers know this. A rising tide lifts all boats.

It is the misguided rigid adherence to copyright that kills innovation. Don't apply what happened in the record industry to history books. They are two completely different forms of art.

Vor - Your comments are noted. Feldgrau is NOT a modeling forum and the copyright holders here don't want their copyrights infringed upon.

I guess I'm not too familiar with the crimes committed in the past, as this is a really old thread. I'll leave it to you whether or not to bring me up to speed.

It depends on how much is posted and to some extent what the purpose is I believe. There is a fair use provision that allows you to post a limited amount without violating copyright if you follow the provisions of that clause. One of those provisions is giving due credit. Now if it's the author that is posting there may also be contractual restraints base on agreements with the publisher.

Common sense should kick in......if it's not yours, don't take it without permission.

Totally agree with Mark's opening post, he and other authors have worked damned hard for our benefit. Respect the work these guys do.
