Terms of use

Copyright notice

copyright noticeAll text, images and other content on this website is the copyright of Stephen Lean except where explicitly stated otherwise, or where images and/or trademarks are used with permission.

You MAY share any content or images on social media sites by using the social share buttons found on each page of this website, or by copy and pasting page/post links. Any sharing of the content of this website MUST be accompanied by a clear link back to the original page.

You may NOT download or copy any content/images for commercial use without first obtaining the written permission of Stephen Lean. If you wish to reproduce any content from this website in any way, for any commercial use whatsoever, you must contact us here first.

The Simple Explanation

Here’s how copyright works: The content/images on this site are created by me, therefore they are MY intellectual property, which means they belong to ME. They are not yours, so please do not steal them.

Now, in the real world, I can’t stop you from right/left-clicking and copying/saving anything and, to be honest, if you really want to do this PURELY FOR YOUR OWN USE, ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER then I’m not really that fussed.

But if I ever see any of my content/images being used in ANY other way – for instance: on your blog or website, or in print, or on any social media site without attribution and a link back to the original page, or for ANY commercial use WHATSOEVER – then you’d better have some pretty deep pockets (and a good lawyer) because it’s gonna cost you!

“Copy and paste” convenience does not bypass licence or copyright laws or give anyone the right to use copyright-protected material for commercial or any other purpose without a licence, permission and a fee being paid for its use.
