To: Zappel Jazz Subject: Permission for images Hi Zappel Jazz! I found some very nice images on by you on flickr while doing research for the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia, and thought your images on might be appropriate for inclusion in our article. I am specifically seeking your permission to use these images: www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/56512021/ www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/56511159/in/set-1224029/ www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/56651958/in/set-1224029/ www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/56638266/in/set-1224029/ www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/57457024/in/set-1224029/ www.flickr.com/photos/zappel_jazz/56638828/in/set-1224029/ Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org/) is a free encyclopedia that is collaboratively edited by volunteers from around the world. Our goal is to create a comprehensive knowledge base that may be freely distributed and available at no charge. Normally we ask permission for material to be used under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License. This means that although you retain the copyright and authorship of your own work, you are granting permission for all others (not just Wikipedia) to use, copy, and share your materials freely -- and even potentially use them commercially -- so long as they do not try to claim the copyright themselves, nor prevent others from using or copying them freely. You can read this license in full at: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Text_of_the_GFDL This license expressly protects creators from being considered responsible for modifications made by others, while ensuring that creators are credited for their work. There is more information on our copyright policy at: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copyrights We choose the GFDL because we consider it the best available tool for ensuring our encyclopedia can remain free for all to use, while providing credit to everyone who donates text and images. This may or may not be compatible with your goals in creating the materials available on your website. Please be assured that if permission is not granted, your materials will not be used at Wikipedia -- we have a very strict policy against copyright violations. With your permission, we will credit you for your work in the image's permanent description page, noting that it is your work and is used with your permission, and we will provide a link back to your website. Thank you for your time.
