Legal use of photos from this Blog


As much as I love having you stargaze through my sparkly moments, I wouldn’t want my shooting stars to end up somewhere they shouldn’t.

I retain all rights to my content. If you want to use my photographs, videos (or any other twinkly thing) for any commercial reason, you can contact me directly.

There are parts to my solar system you might want to share with others. But I can’t have my carefully-produced content ending up in a copyright black hole. You cannot resell or reproduce any of the work on this site.

There’s a shiny thing called a licensing fee + if you wish, you can buy the license to share anything you see here with your star-powered pals legally.

In such a case, I ‘release’ to you your chosen space dust with standard user license, subject to restrictions, and you can continue on your own orbit with pleasure.

I wouldn’t want to my constellation to get mixed up in the wrong nebula – if you pluck a moment to sparkle up your own project, I must be credited as the image or video owner.

Sometimes you may need more than a standard license  – you may want to use my glow-in-the-dark memories in a way bigger, intergalactic way! For this kind of use, I offer an extended license.

Read about the differences between the two here.

A note about Copyright

With copyright, a good rule of thumb is to assume all work in the U.S. after 1923 is protected by copyright—anything before then is in the public domain, says Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, a visual artist who also teaches art law at Fordham University.

Between 1923 and 1978, work either had to bear a copyright symbol or be registered with the copyright office in order to be copyrighted, he says. Since 1978, however, work no longer has to be registered or even bear a symbol to have copyright protection. “If you draw a design on a sheet of paper and post the image on Facebook, and I grab it and make T-shirts out of the design, I’ve infringed on your copyright,” he says.
