We have copyright options for all images, but there is no specific copyright for Bricklink. Knowing how wiki people work, the pictures will end up here no matter what. Some copyright options for this case may include "This is copyrighted, but use is permitted by copyright holder," or "This will be used in a way that qualifies as fair use under US law." We can link a picture to the home site, if a user is willing to leave the wiki site in order to view the full resolution picture. You may also wish to consider watermarking future images, though I can't guarantee they won't end up here anyway. I am sorry for your distress, and I will see what we can do after you decide on a copyright option. --TheGrandEditor 22:30, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Here is a sample of what is being done as a temporary solution. [1] You will see that there is now a link to Brickset. --TheGrandEditor 22:49, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
  • Hello Huw, I read what you said about Brickset images being uploaded here on Darth smith's talk page, and I have designed a template which we can put on all of your images, an example of this is here. When a user uploads an image, they are also able to select that the image is from Brickset, and the template will appear with the file when it is uploaded. If this still isn't satisfactory, please let me know and I'll start a forum as soon as possible to see what we can do about this. Personally, I'm a big fan of Brickset and the last thing I want to do is make bad friends with you guys, and I can completely understand you wanting the credit for the images you've been taking.

    • Great to hear that's ok with you, and thanks for letting us still use them on our site. I'll start tagging all of the relevant images now. Thanks again, NightblazeSaber 00:47, March 31, 2011 (UTC)
