What is Copyright Infringement?
Simply put, copyright infringement is (but not limited to) the act of knowingly using, duplicating, and or claiming ownership of someone else’s work without exclusive permission from its original owner. Pretty much anything that can be created can be copyright protected, such as books, photographs, ect. The laws surrounding copyright infringement can be quite confusing, with terms like "Fair use”, so the best practice is to simply ask the original owner. If you have any questions about copyright laws. Please see the US Copyright Office website at http://copyright.gov/
Bridge Arts respects the rights of all artists and creative's worldwide, and we expect our subscribers to demonstrate an equal amount of respect. Protecting your intellectual property rights is important to us. When we become aware that a Bridge Arts submission infringes upon the copyrights of another artist, creative person or company, the work in question will be immediately deleted. This is a legal requirement, which we fulfill immediately; you will not receive an advanced warning and you will not be given an opportunity to 'fix it'. Any copyright owner following the procedures in this Copyright Policy can require Bridge Arts to remove his or her copyrighted content. Please note, Even if the work in question has been removed, the copyright owner may still file suit and you may be responsible for very significant damages.
