I Ching Images[edit]

Hi Ben,



would like to use several of your images on Wikimedia in a book we are

publishing. We have to confirm that the copyright information is correct before we do.

Can you please confirm this is correct:

The copyright holder of this file, Ben Finney, allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that the copyright holder is properly attributed. Redistribution, derivative work, commercial use, and all other use is permitted.

Thank you.

Ben Finney response[edit]

Yes, all of the [Category:I_Ching_hexagrams] images in which I hold copyright are free for all recipients to redistribute under the terms of CC By 3.0.

Appropriate text would be:

   The I Ching hexagram images are Copyright © 2007 Ben Finney. All recipients are permitted to modify and/or redistribute these images under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license.

Good Day Mr. Finney,

I am a publishing agent looking to have a direct permission on file for a client to use your images in a book. Would you be able to contact me via email with direct permission? If so I will post my contact email then remove it once I receive the permission. Thank you for the consideration.


That request seems to be just a repeat of the existing one. Your client, like any recipient of these images, has permission explicitly granted as above; special grant to each party is not needed.

Thank you for the reply. My client is the one who asked the above question. However since this page is an open platform that anyone can edit I would just need an email sent directly to me stating the above. It would be greatly appreciated as this will accomplish the proper legal permission needed for the author to publish their book. If possible please just send the same permission to

Thank you,
