About Copyrights

Credit and Documentation of Image

You may freely distribute any and all files if you follow a few simple guidelines:

  • Keep the file in its original state (filename and format). Do not alter the image unless permission is explicitly given to the contrary.
  • Include the ArtQuest Listings full information file with the image.
  • Include a copy of this Copyright Notice page. 


If you want to use any of the images or documents you find at ArtQuest, for publications, advertisements or software, you'll have to obtain permission and adhere to the stipulations of the permission (such as a free copy of the publication, full address credit or royalties to the artist). If permission isn't explicitly given, then you'll have to contact the artist, estate or owner to ask for it.


The ArtQuest service distributes original image files to the public. It's possible, as with any form of mass-media, that someone could unscrupulously use these images for financial gain. Unless you've received permission for that, it's illegal and ArtQuest takes no responsibility for this type of action. In simple terms, all rights revert to the author/artist/member. To submit an image at ArtQuest is to give permission for it to be viewed, copied and distributed electronically. If you don't want your images distributed, don't upload or send them for scanning. To submit an image at ArtQuest is NOT giving permission to have it used in any publication or broadcast for profit (this includes, but is not limited to, magazines, newsletters, clip-art software, screen-printed clothing, etc.). You must give/get specific permission for this sort of usage. ArtQuest takes no responsibility for the authenticity of any art listed on the service and highly recommends referring to an expert or consultant for guidance in your acquisitions. The information, text, graphics, and links provided herein are provided by ArtQuest, as a convenience to its customers. ArtQuest does not warrant the accuracy, or completeness of the information, text, graphics, links, and other items contained on this server or any other server. We provide links as a matter of convenience, and we do not necessarily endorse the links you may find on our service. ArtQuest reserves the right to review and/or edit all listings/submissions and only use those that are consistent with the theme and goals of ArtQuest. All submissions shall be deemed to be non-confidential and ArtQuest shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such information and shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute the information to others without limitation.
