Just recently, 2 pictures I posted were censored because of „copyright“, while others I posted were not.

How the fu+k should I know what is copyrighted and what not ?

And why are these pictures removed even in the „closed“ forum ?

It's not our problem. If you're not sure whether a picture is free for use, don't post it.

It's not our problem. If you're not sure of the picture's free legal status, don't post it, otherwise you'll get moderated, plain and simple.

That is silly.

Which tools are you using to check if a picture is copyrighted or not ?

What about pictures from Instagram, Twitter and Facebook?
What about poll graphics?
What about YouTube videos? Can we still embed them?

Dave's been very clear about images policy. Regardless of whether lurkers can view them or not, it can still produce legal problems for the site. You're free to PM him about this, if you don't trust my words.

For starters, I noticed a number of images you're posting comes from the news sites. Said sites usually include a reference. Just use your brain.

Simple: If you didn't make or take the picture, don't post it. It's potentially subject to the copyright of someone else.

In particular, don't take pictures from news sites. You don't own the copyright on them, and they tend to get annoyed when other people use their pictures.

Finally, somebody's making sense.

But yeah it is really stupid that we cant share Images from a Broadcaster that belongs to us. Still, i urge respect for Kalwejts moderating, i dont want this site to shut down because of some copyright infraction.

I cannot find any hint in their ToS that embedding is still not allowed. Germany's most famous entertainment lawyer, Christian Solmecke, plus the ECJ are on my site.

Much more interesting is the question if ARD's ToS also apply to Instagram and Twitter links. I'd say no, cause the ToS explicitly claim that they only deem valid for ARD.de/ARD Mediathek. Once they upload a picture on those platform they consent to have their pics retweeted and embedded on other websites. They also don't earn money by having an Insta/Twitter account, so the comparison with profitable YT videos doesn't count. (Plus state TV broadcasters ARD and ZDF don't even play ads on their YT channels.)

Hello, Dave! Are Instagram and Facebook pics and YouTube thumbnails also deemed to be confirmed in the public domain?
And what about Tweets? I guess we don't  need to clarify their source. But what about pictures from Twitter?

With regards!

Technically public domain photos don't need attribution. Also does this mean that freely licensed photos that aren't in the public domain aren't allowed?

Can we still post charts and maps from news sites if we link to the source?

Honestly, I am pretty sure that all images should be legal to post and Dave would easily win a lawsuit if it came to that. If a company complains, they can send Dave a list of pics they want removed and I am sure they would be removed if it was really bad.

Why is Atlas different from any other forum in the internet, including Reddit and what not?

For one thing, the Atlas is a sole proprietorship. While Dave has formed an LLC for the Atlas, that mainly guarantees that he won't be personally liable for any debts the Atlas might have, not that he won't be personally liable for any torts the Atlas might have. Secondly, the Forum is not the main reason Dave has this site. It's an auxiliary feature, and so he is very risk averse concerning the Forum.
