- Image Usage and Fairness Practices:
- To ensure fairness to all venues and convey the overall atmosphere accurately, we make efforts to find a recent photo that best represents each venue featured in our articles. In cases where a suitable Creative Commons or stock photo cannot be found or used to accurately portray the venue, we may use an image from the venue’s official website or social media channels.
- We use these images for journalistic and informational purposes to inform our readers about venues worldwide. This usage falls under the principles of fair use, as we are a news and informational website. It is essential to us that venues featured in the same article with an image do not gain an unfair commercial advantage in the eyes of our readers.
- When we source images directly from a venue’s official website or social media channels, we take steps to notify the venue of their listing on our website. This notification provides venues with an opportunity to request changes to the image, information, or request an image replacement. We are committed to addressing such requests promptly and fairly.
- Please note that our use of images is in line with journalistic practices and is intended for informational and illustrative purposes. We strive to maintain transparency and fairness while adhering to the principles of fair use.
