Photo Galleries

Copyrights and Watermarks:

Almost all photographs displayed in the Military Aviation Archives Photo Galleries have watermarks to prevent their unauthorized reproduction elsewhere.  This not only includes original photographs taken by Bert Kinzey and other private contributing photographers to Detail & Scale, but in most cases, we will also add a watermark to photographs obtained from collections and other sources that may be in the public domain.  The reason we add watermarks to the photographs from sources in the public domain is because they were obtained with an expenditure of time and effort as well as monetary costs for film, travel, and other expenses.  Time is also spent digitally cleaning up, sizing, and enhancing the exposure and other features of most photos, and this takes time and effort as well.  This makes the photo Detail & Scale’s copy of the original, and we protect that copy, not as a copyright issue but simply for our efforts in obtaining the photo and making it ready for presentation.  The watermark used on these photographs will not have the copyright symbol included.

All original photographs by private individuals are copyrighted by the photographers and have the copyright symbol in the watermark.  These may not be reproduced without the written consent of Detail & Scale, however they may be shared electronically as long as the watermark remains unaltered and the integral caption, if present, remains with the photograph.  The captions give credit to the photographer and attribute the copyright to that person.  All commercial and reproduction rights are reserved, and any unauthorized use of these photographs, with or without the watermark being visible, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

For photographs taken by private photographers, the watermark will include the copyright symbol as well as “” or “”  This watermark does not mean that Detail & Scale owns the copyright, only that the photograph is copyrighted and that it is Detail & Scale’s copy of the photograph.  The actual owner of the copyright is stated in the caption attached to the photograph.

Original photographs are credited to the photographer in the caption, and the fact that they are copyrighted is also indicated in the caption, e.g. Detail & Scale copyright Photo by Bert Kinzey or Copyright photograph by Ray Leader from the Detail & Scale Collection.”  The source of all other photographs not taken by private individuals is likewise indicated in the captions, e.g. Photo from the collection of the National Naval Aviation Museum.

Detail & Scale is a strong believer in protecting copyrights.  We will not knowingly display any photograph without proper permission.  However, when contributors share photographs in their collections with us that were taken by others, we rely on the contributor to insure that the original photographer grants the use of the photograph.  Likewise, we watch for any violation of the copyrights of any photographs we share, and we will take appropriate action if we see abuse.
