i've got this WordPress site where i place bird pictures in a daily blog and then try to in a proper classification scheme elsewhere on the website
however, there's 2 buts : in order to make the site more comprehensive, i've added (where available) an audio part from the RSPB bird guide
so that the sound of the bird can be linked with its appearance, and secondly, i've also (again, where available) used distribution maps of where various birds occur in the UK from the Bird Atlas Mapstore
now what i've done on the home page of the iste is place the following disclaimer :
Note: All the photographs, as well as the YouTube videos, in the blog are mine, although I don't mind if people want to use them elsewhere (you'll find a small number of them in Wikimedia Commons). However, on some pages I have embedded bird sounds which come from the RSBP's Bird Guide
, and the UK distribution map on some pages comes from the Bird Atlas Mapstore
. If anyone has any problems with this, please contact me, and I'll see what I can do.
what i was wondering is whether something like this is sufficient as a disclaimer ? presumably it all will depend on how territorial both the RSPB and the Mapstore are when it comes to the use of their material
does anyone have any experience with this type of thing ? does it help that this site is purely for my own enjoyment and totally not for profit ?
