Simple question

 1:30 am on Aug 6, 2007 (gmt 0)


Can I use postcards of the places that I have been to, on my adsense pages (along with other text content)?

Postcards are either scanned or I took a photo of a postcard with digital camera.

On postcards I cannot find any copyright notice.

any thoughts?

Simple answer: No.

Longer answer: A postcard or other work needn't have a copyright notice to be protected by copyright. The only postcards you can safely copy are those that you know are in the public domain. Project Gutenberg has some useful guidelines:

EFV is right; virtually everything is copyrighted. You probably wouldn't get into trouble for using one postcard, but since you're speaking in the plural it sounds like you want to use a bunch of them to pad out your site's content. THAT is not a good idea.

There's no need to use scanned postcards. Just go on Google and search for "free stock photos" and you'll get more than 2 million results.

If you've been there and you have a digital camera, why not take pictures of the places you've been and post those?

The propensity to scarf someone else's stuff.

Someone had to spend their time and effort to produce the card.
