Subject: Use of your content
Content which has been contributed to public areas of Pedegru.com by users remains the property of the submitter or the original creator. However, we are a licensed distributor of such content. Occasionally, a person may feel that content submitted by another user is their property or is covered by the copyright of someone other than the submitter. Please remember that we are only the distributor of user-supplied content and the submitter, not Pedegru, is the one who has violated copyright if such a violation has occurred. The following reflects U.S. law; for guidelines on using images in other countries, or for specific copyright questions, please consult a legal professional. It should be noted that there have been a variety of rulings saying that thumbnail-sized photos (such as those used in Google Image Search results) are not infringing on copyrights because, applying fair-use factors, the small photo does not have an effect on the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. Additionally, images and text found on Wikipedia are in the public domain and some of the images and text found on this site may have come from that source. Also, images in the GruPedia sections of the site are strictly for the purpose of criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research. Nothing on Pedegru should be re-used, duplicated, published or otherwise distributed in any form without prior consent. If you feel that an image may fall outside the public domain we will respond to substantiated claims of violation as quickly as possible. In such a case, the person who believes they have a claim under copyright should send a claim of copyright violation to:
All the following must be included:
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to be infringed upon and the basis of the claim.
- Identification of the material which is claimed to be infringing including any URL(s).
- Full contact information on the claimed copyright owner or other claimant (who must have a license which is being infringed upon or other legal standing supporting the claim) including name, address, telephone, fax and email information.
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information sent is accurate and the complaining party is the owner or an authorized agent of the owner.
- A physical or electronic signature of the claiming party.
