Interesting, as when I saw his comment about the image, I checked the image carefully for any copyright notice. Nothing. Just some decoration in the lower corner that looks like its tied to a theme camp or something. Checked info within the file, but no EXIF info and all the IPTC fields, including Author and Copyright were blank. At the site where it was hosted, no copyright notice nor ownership claim, but there was on the page an "all rights reserved" (site viewed with Firefox? others see something different?). No copyright claim on the image or part of the file. Doesn't seem a very good way to protect an image.

You have all been warned. Cheers, mates !!!!

Fair use is a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work. In United States copyright law, fair use is a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. It provides for the legal, unlicensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author's work.
