We have added copyright notices to most of our HTML documents. Why? Well, when we started doing so, we didn't have anything here that we really expected anyone to steal, but someone we know did have an image ripped off from one of his pages by a book publisher. So we figured we ought to get in the habit of including copyright notices on principle as a reminder of what folks should already know: that by law (in most countries, including the USA) works are protected by copyright from the moment of creation in tangible form, and to make clear who owns these images and texts.
Want to use something you see on one of the pages on this website? Contact us and ask us. Depending on what it is, we can almost certainly work something out. Depending on what it is, we may only require proper credit and the knowledge that you were polite enough to ask (as the law requires, by the way). For other things, talk to me and we'll negotiate apropriate compensation.
Search engines, indexers, spiders, etc., are allowed to use snippets of these pages to display when displaying results of a search that hit on one of my pages. Personally, we think that'd fall under the "fair use" provisions of copyright law anyhow, but I'm not a lawyer.
Note that we are claiming copyright only on the pages residing in the http://www.homespunceilidh.com website. specifically all files found under http://www.homespunceilidh.com. We do not claim copyright to pages, written by others, that our pages contain links to. Also, you do not need our permission to create a link to one of our pages (though we do appreciate hearing from you if you do, just to get some idea where hits are coming from).
