The images on this website and in our Picasa Image Galleries are copyright of their creators and may not be reproduced in any form without permission (except for talks under certain conditions - see below).
We can provide professional quality high resolution versions (usually scanned at 600 dpi) of images which are copyright of G. W. Beccaloni, the Wallace family, or the Wallace Memorial Fund for publication, broadcast, exhibition etc. In addition we may be able to supply others (e.g. pictures of Charles Darwin) which are not displayed on this website - please ask.
If your intended use is entirely non-commercial then please send a list of the image name(s) or captions and an explanation of your intended use to firstname.lastname@example.org Reproduction fees will almost certainly be waived for images to be used in non-commercial publications, websites etc - all we ask is for you to credit the copyright owners of the images. Note that permission is NOT required to use images for non-commercial talks, so long as the images in question are copyright of G. W. Beccaloni, the Wallace family, or the Wallace Memorial Fund (also note that we permit these images to be shown in videos of such talks). Images which are the copyright of all others will require their permission (you will need to contact them to ask).
If you would like to reproduce images in a commercial publication, broadcast etc then please complete THIS FORM and send it to email@example.com. After receipt of your email request and attached invoice form, we will contact you with information about the availability of the images, and if we are able to supply them, we will send you a quote for the cost of the reproduction fee. The cost of supplying an image will depend on the rights you are requesting and discounts may be given if more than three images are required. Payment is necessary before the images are provided. Paypal is the preferred payment method.
Copyright of photographs under UK law is complex, but a good summary can be found here: http://libraryonline.leedsmet.ac.uk/lco/publications/pdf/lc/is-88.pdf
Quotes from this document:-
For photos where the photographer is known: "Copyright expires 70 years after the end of the year of the author’s death, whether the photograph was published or not, except in the case of photographs taken between 1 June 1957 & 31 July 1989."
For photos where the photographer is not known: "Copyright expires 70 years after the end of the year in which the photograph was taken or was made available to the public. If the identity of the author becomes known before the copyright expires, the rules in the previous section then apply."
Also see http://www.artquest.org.uk/articles/view/publication-right-the-new-right for information about Publication Right. "Publication Right, introduced into UK law on January 1, 1996, applies to works, including photographs, where copyright has expired and such work has never been exposed to public view - via publication or exhibition. If such works are published for the first time, the publisher automatically acquires a publication right that lasts for 25 years from the end of the year of first publication. This right is similar to copyright, and enables the publication right owner to prevent any reproduction they have not authorised."
