Sharing and Distributing Our Content
This page attempts to lay out the basic guidelines for distribution of our content online. However, it in no way takes the place of a legally binding document, and where other licenses apply to certain intellectual property as indicated with the content, appropriate licensing laws are to be applied.
A special note on images
Images - excluding our brand assets -- are an essential part of our content and our image library consists of a mixture of outsourced images, as well as our original images. If an image is sourced from a third party, an appropriate note will be found with the caption of the image and the appropriate copyright code will apply (mostly Creative Commons Licensed). If not otherwise noted, the image is our work, and they are governed by the same distribution guidelines as our written content, as outlined below.
Original content on articles
Original content on articles include any written content, including captions and pull quotes, as well as original images, photographs, video, and other media. Cafe Avant-Garde holds exclusive copyrights to our original content. However, such orignal content is free to use, under the following conditions:
- Any original written work cannot be modified to create a derivative work without written permission from the author.
- Any original graphics, including photographs and any audio, including those found in audio and video format, are free to be redistributed and modified, as long as the original creator is attributed by name and, where possible, a link to the source web page is provided in text form.
In addition, if you plan on using a piece of our content, though not required by us, we would appreciate it if you let us know.
