Is it legal to use airliners.net pics on youtube?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

The title says it all. I came across a lot of videos on youtube that feature slide shows of airliners.net pictures. So just wondering if it's ok? I'm guessing it's ok as long as the watermark/photographer name is shown? Please correct me if I"m wrong.

 

Thanks

No, without permission from those people who have taken those pictures it's not allowed.

 

Of course many people just don't care when they make their picture slideshows to Youtube, but that doesn't mean it would be allowed.

 

Google airliners net photo use for a page with more information about this.

Rights must be obtained from the individual owning copyright, unless airliners.net has user terms that makes all the photos uploaded there public domain, which I highly doubt.

The answer is no.

 

You may not use these photos on any web page, commercial or non-commercial, for profit or non-profit, without written permission from the photographer. You may however link to the photos in the manner described below.

That is correct for most of the world, but in some contries (like the USA) you might have a hard time in court unless your work has been registered and/or clearly marked.

Well, in the US, "fixed in a tangible medium of expression" but same general idea.
