For all you Tech Forum posters, don't forget to help me out and help populate as well as review products in our new Product Review Area. This will help out folks looking for information as well as help us out by sharing your own experiences with equipment, good or bad.

In addition, when you review something, a link goes is placed at the bottom to your GG profile. To participate, if you're logged into the forum, just go there, if not, go there and login using your forum username and pw....

All help is appreciated, and thanks for making GG the place to be....more to come, rg sends!

You can upload whatever products you use...just go to the manufacturers site, download an image or two, then upload to GG with the image and text from the product description--then you can make your review right underneath it all....the beauty, you can let the world know what you use, what you like/dislike about it, etc.

Plus this helps out those not sure if they want to buy a specific product or not....thanks, rg sends!

Um, isn't that copyright infringement? Downloading images from one web site to use on another?

While the image is owned by the copyright holder, most vendors release those copyrights when they push those images through news services like PRN Newswire for full-release in editorial content, such as magazines, websites, reviews, etc. and make them available for public use, similar to public domain.

There is no violation, when the advertisers releases those images through PRN Newswire (or a similar news/PR agency) the same ones they use on their website, when the image is used to promote their products.

Most advertisers will give you an arm and a leg to promote their products. On the ones I've posted so far, I personally spoke to the company marketing reps at PMA--there response, go for it! The key is for the initial posting with their released text, not for the review one would post that would be opinionated. (these are product shots without models that they, the manufactures, release themselves for editorial use, including reviews)

In other words, for the initial product posting, as long as it's not altered or skewed from they way they release it through PRN or their own website, it can be used--but not in the follow on reviews. In fact, most vendor sites have areas to download images, releases, etc., on thier products. Obviously, you cannot alter the image, nor superimpose it with say a "model" or something that defames the product.

On a side note, ever notice why almost every camera store uses the same images and marketing text? Or why photo magazines use the same product images? These come straight from the vendor.

Hope that helps, thanks, rg sends! (This image I shot and was originally posted on Newtek.com's web site with the idea anyone could download and use it for promotion of their product, hence no copyright notice.)

If my understanding of the law is correct, copyright is null if the material is being shown for review/critique purposes. Several high profile websites get away with this loophole for commercial gain (Mr. Skin comes to mind). Now the danger here is if the wrong product gets shown by mistake.
