Specifically, if I get hình ảnh to do with a tv hiển thị (eg. Buffy) from a website and they don't seem to be altered in any way should I credit each individual website I got the hình ảnh from hoặc should I credit the production company that produces the hiển thị (eg. 20th century fox)? Also, if I take screencaps off my own computer can I add those hình ảnh crediting the production company hoặc is it copyright infringement to screencap the hình ảnh yourself?
to my knowledge the owner- in general *salutes*- of a picture is the always the photographer. that being đã đưa ý kiến in most cases i think they give the right to the company so "20th century fox" is okay as a credit. if youre unsure who produces/owns the right to the tv hiển thị bạn can always check imdb.com (same for movies)since i think for movie stills they always give the rights to the studio as well.
if bạn get hình ảnh from another website its usually a tad thêm difficult to credit unless they actually post a credit. if bạn have no idea who has the rights to the image bạn can put "unknown" and put the nguồn in the description- so if anyone claims copyright hoặc KNOWS the credit bạn can add that. i dont think anyone will pursue legal charges if bạn screencap yourself and credit the studio. for fanart bạn can credit the studio/owner and put the "artist" and nguồn (e.g.creative changes bởi johnsmith456 fanpop.com)in the description. i dont think that there is need to credit the website (who does the same bạn do: take hình ảnh who belong to someone else and post them..possibly though with written permission :P) unless like i đã đưa ý kiến if bạn just add them as a source.
