Images of hifi/av equipment on AV Forums. Rule 9 : Use images from 3rd parties' websites without their permission. Linking to an image on someone else's website without their permission is considered to be bandwidth theft. We have had big problems with people linking to our images without permission and we dont allow members to do the same to other people. Spectre I just spotted this : so basically posting Any picture from a website/company without getting written/verbal permission from said company is not allowed ? This seems an odd rule to me when most images posted of equipment or components is actually adverstising for the company concerned by satisfied customers in most cases, I can see why this rule would apply if you were being contentious about a product, are you at liberty to divulge what companies have taken humbrage to their images being used on the net ? or what cases you are refferring to above ? Just curious as there seems to be a grey area of what you can/cant post, sounds very close to no iamges at al IMO. Is it not a logical extension of ones opinion ? BTW Im quite happy for anyone to copy any picture of my stuff on my homepage if it helps any person gets enjoyment from this great hobby of ours.
