Copyright Policy

Source: wikimedia.com

Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. Generally, it is “the right to copy”, but also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other, related rights.

Articles on KKSBlog.com may contain 1 or more images from various sources. For lots of images it is not clear if copyrights are involved and the source might be unknown, specially for older articles. If copyrighted content is used without permission from the copyright holder, kksblog.com becomes legally liable. If a copyright holder contacts us about infringing content we will remove the image or other media in question immediately.

Advice for our contributors

We encourage our contributors to use copyright free content like images and other media.  And they are requested to always credit the source when it is not clear if there are copyrights involved.
