Eliminate copyright issues in design from your list of concerns!

By December 24, 2020No Comments

Where’s the fun in common designs? When working on a design idea, you may take inspiration from other designs but copying the whole concept would be a whole another thing. It would mean crossing boundaries and getting yourself involved in copyright infringement. Notwithstanding whether you are creating a website, logo, business card, flyer, or brochure, it is necessary to know the elements in a part of the craft that copyright preserves so that you do not illegally employ them in your design. Copying someone’s work is plainly wrong.

Copying someone’s work doesn’t just question your integrity but is lawfully wrong as well and it should be avoided in all cases. It makes it essential for you to make sure the design agency you tie-up with keeps in mind to avoid any infringement.

Here are some tips they must follow:

Stuff marked ‘free for commercial use’ is not to be used

One should never ever use any stuff from the internet labeled ‘ free for commercial use’. Wondering why? Simply because there’s no guarantee of the source you’re picking content from. This could easily be you infringing copyrights of the particular content.

‘Only for editorial use’ is the cue to not use it

One must not use “only for editorial use” even when they have purchased the file in any advertisable design material. If you go by the exact meaning, ‘for editorial use only’ itself means that it is not for commercial purposes and educational motive only. Even if after that it gets used, it’ll be a clear violation of the Copyright Act.

Say yes to the paid stuff

It’s a safer option to use the stuff you’ve paid for. The huge library of fonts, vectors, images, videos, themes, plugins purchased can be used for your website without you being worried about copyright issues. Learn more.

Removing watermarks don’t make a difference

Removing the watermark from a picture and using it does not make any difference. Removing watermarks does not make it legit, and it can still be caught by embedded codes in the file that crawlers can easily read.
