Dear members and friends!
I have to remind you again no foreign texts and pictures in forum, blog, gallery, calendar, chat. You Tube Videos are of course allowed. There is a ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ).
In the future it will probably be possible to link texts and images quite officially to other websites. The purpose of the case is to ensure that every person and organization benefits from the fact that its content is shared worldwide. More
important, however, is the fact that there will never be effective protection, sharing, downloading, or extracting protected files from
third-party software, e.g. Adobe Flashplayer.
With pictures, of course, the wonderful possibility to burn watermarks
into the picture, but this considerably limits the user experience.
The lawyers are of the opinion that every human being has to be aware of
the fact that at this moment he really gives up control over the further
use of these files. As a result, any natural person is free to either publish or modify specially modified files.
In my opinion absolutely correct, because it is the pure insanity the
responsibility on website, community, and server operators, who can not
control in reality, which is at all intellectual property, and certainly not as it is when and where shared . The current legal situation fueled only the juridical black market, the legal El Dorado, where criminals earn money with spurious, often illegal warnings and injunctions.With genuine protection of intellectual property, the current legal situation really has nothing to do with it.
Until the implementation of the new case law, however, we must be careful not to post anything from others. If you link from other forums and websites, get the permission from the operator of the respective web presence, whether you can link and show this. Many don't want it at all, others exist at least to a nomination of the source. News portals and pages almost never allow any linking, whether with source or without. Unfortunately!
It hurts me in the soul, but I have to delete all posts in which strange, intellectual property is linked.
Please post your own pictures, photos, and texts. It also animates you to become creative and create content yourself, formulate texts in your own words, upload your own pictures. I haven't made these laws, but I must respect them.
