Discussed the matter of copyright in professional studies today and it seems to be a very complicated subject. I’ve spent part of my day checking that my images are credited and referenced fully. It was time-consuming but I think I’m there now. I just need to send an e-mail to one artist to ask her permission to use her images as she stated quite clearly that prior permission must be gained beforehand.
At the moment I’m not concerned about people copying my images. During my periods of research I’ve collected hundreds of images and I would be flattered if anyone referenced mine. However this is something I need to bear in mind in the future – that I do receive credit for my work.
