I have been approached by a certain Fighter Group Association and asked if I could provide numerous profiles (approx 40)for publication in a forthcoming book about that Fighter Group.The request is based upon the many skins I have done and made available to the community.

I am obviously eager to do this but realise that these images would be taken from "IL2 Fb/Pf" and therefore likely subject to copyright.

The images origins would of course be made clear and as such would provide excellent publicity for this Sim that has taken over a substantial portion of the lives of so many of us in this community.

As causing legal problems for anyone is the last thing I wish could any representative let me know where I stand on this or PM me with instructions as to how to go about discussing this issue further?

Hi BoNidle
Wouldn't email be the best (possibly quicker, too) channel to check that? pf@1c.ru
Just guessing

You do great skins IMO, I have some beautiful P-47 and P-51 jobs from your factory, thanks for them http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Cheers,

Thanks for the e-mail address mate. That was what I couldn't figure out.

By all means, it's likely that images are able to be used as most copyrighted material...

That is, on permission from the copyright owner, on a case by case basis.

This means, should Bo_Nidle receive the 'OK' from Oleg to use a set of images in his book (no doubt with a tagline...images from the IL-2 FB Simulation by Maddox Games), this doesn't automatically open the floodgate for anyone else to use the images where they wish.

Each person would have to seek permission every time...

just a quick word to clear up a point.It is not my book.It is being written by the families of Pilots in the Fighter Group in question. I have been asked by them to supply the illustrations on the basis of my skins.

If I were the holder of the copyright, I'd be more than happy to have aircraft images published, with a small print note reading "Aircraft models from 1C:Maddox's IL2-FB-PF" and another one in larger print reading "Aircraft paint jobs by Bo_Nidle" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
