The SAWDIS has been inundated with requests from people interested to publish some of images taken by the SAWDIS and displayed under the topics: Images: SAWDIS Holiday Observation and Disaster Strategy Planning: Mossel Bay/Hartenbos 28 December 2011 (Part 1 and 2) PLEASE NOTE: These images are subjected to exclusive copyrights attach to the SAWDIS.

Exclusive rights typically attach to the SAWDIS:

  • to import or export the work
  • to create derivative works (works that adapt the original work)
  • to perform or display the work publicly

The SAWDIS is currently in negotiations with a non profitable local enterprise regarding the right to use the photos free of charge but subject to certain conditions.  

The SAWDIS is not in favour of copyrights on images published on the SAWDIS Blog as it believe that images should be freely available to the general public of this country.  However a special request was received from this local enterprise based in Mossel Bay. The SAWDIS has therefore decided to apply copyrights to these images.

The SAWDIS request that the copyright be respected with regard to these images.
