DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT
Nuray Home supports the Art community as a whole in every way that we can! We built our community entirely based on the core fundamentals regarding respect and recognition of artists. We humbly request that no person posts work on Nuray Home that may be infringing on the intellectual property of other artists, companies, and their trademarks! By doing so, you will be helping Nuray Home set roots as a trustworthy and ethically sound company that operates with full integrity.
There are several international treaties that relate to intellectual property, but the laws are not uniform across the world. However, generally speaking…
COPYRIGHT law protects the expression of an original idea recorded in a tangible form, such as artwork in the form of photographs or paintings and literary works in the form of poems or stories.
TRADEMARK law protects the use of words, symbols, designs or logos that identify and distinguish a source of goods.
PUBLICITY RIGHTS protect an individual’s name, image, and likeness. Basically, this means you can’t use someone else’s identity, to your commercial advantage, without their consent.
A NOTE ON FAIR USE: You might be able to incorporate someone else’s copyright or trademark into your own work, if you do it in such a way that that is considered “fair use” or in such a way that qualifies as another permissible use. However, please be aware that “fair use” typically applies in limited circumstances and isn’t the same as “freedom of speech”. Quite frankly “fair use” is a difficult concept, even for the experts, and the scope of “fair use” is different in different countries. So even if you think you’ve created a work covered by “fair use” or another permissible use, you should talk to an attorney prior to using it in connection with the Nuray Home service. While some uses might appear “fair” or permissible to you, we ask that you understand that Nuray Home must act in accordance with its Notice and Takedown procedure when a report has been received. Additionally, certain works may be taken down without a specific report being received if we are otherwise alerted or aware of potential infringement issues.
Ultimately, you take full responsibility for the works you upload and display on Nuray Home . This is reflected in our TERMS OF SERVICE. Use of the Nuray Home website indicates continued acceptance of this Agreement.
So please do us all a favor and if someone has created or owns the rights to a picture, painting, photograph, logo, story, poem or any other work, copyright, trademark or publicity right (regardless of whether it’s an individual or a large global company), obtain consent before you use that work in connection with the Nuray Home service. This will help ensure that you don’t infringe the rights of any third party and help us promote an encouraging and inspired environment at Nuray Home filled with wit, soul, meaning and aesthetic genius.
