I have been in contact with most of the major sites that display photos of various ships.

These include as follows,
SHIPSPOTTING
SHIPS NOSTALGIA
COASTERS REMEMBERED
MERSEA ISLAND SHIPS.
SEATHESHIPS
SHIPPING HISTORY.
PHOTOSHIP.(on memory stick)
SUNDERLANDSHIPS.COM.(NEW)

Most do not have a problem with our members taking copies of photos from their sites.When uploading, members must comply with Copyright Law.(See below)

Post only photographs or videos for which you have copyright ownership. Other people’s slides or negatives can only be used if their name and permission is stated in the description. If you own or hold prints, slides or negatives that have been purchased or acquired by other means but you are not certain of the copyright owner you must NOT upload to the website, all photographs not taken or owned by the member must clearly state in the description the name of the person that owns the copyright and that the member has approval to upload them to this website. Photo's with the wording copyright or a signature displayed upon the photo will be deleted.

An Exception to this is Mr Chris Houghton who posts all his photos with his own Copyright insignia.

Do not upload Photographs from publications and books, they are Copyright.

A message has been added to the gallery pertaining to Copyright.

Thank you
