Was looking for something on permission and giving credit for photos, and cannot find anything in the Help pages.
The FAQ still has nothing about copyright, permission, or crediting photos. This was discussed on March 28, 2015, almost a year ago.
Proposal that we include the text suggested by Jillaine, as a minimum.
Suggested text Elements:
Make sure you have permission to upload the photo:
* you took the photo yourself
* the person who took the photo gave you permission to share it on wikitree
* the photo is in the public domain [link to definition of public domain photos]
You may not have permission to upload the photo if:
* you downloaded it from a commercial site such as ancestry.com or find-a-grave-.com check their user license agreements
Who is working on the Help pages right now, anyone know? Is there a project for this - how is it done?
I'm asking, not to be accusatory, but because I would be willing to help, and I bet lots of others would, too. Just don't know how it works.
Thanks in advance!
