Image copyright Issues

Where possible we are obtaining permission to use and display original images but as there are so many images we want to display and getting information on who holds copyright is so difficult with our limited resources, we are re-processing original images into charcoal drawings or paintings. This means that some images are not as good quality as we might like but in most cases a good approximation of the original has been made possible. Our understanding of the current copyright law in Australia as it relates to pictures and photographs is, the copyright is automatically extinguished 70 years after the death of the originator of the image.


If anyone objects to the use of any image in this guide please contact us and we will immediately withdraw it.
