Need some advice, not really here to discuss the article[edit]

What is the copyright status of images uploaded to normal image hosting services? Are these images usually just free to use for anyone for any purpose?--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 23:27, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

No definitely not. Under common copyright law, all original works usually remain the copyright of their original creator regardless of how or where they are copied or transferred, unless in someway rights are resigned or transferred such with a Creative Commons licence, or copyright has expired (such as with historic works). See the copyright article. I would hazard a significant proportion of non-original images uploaded to personal accounts are in breach of copyright in some way. Verseguru 00:59, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Comparison of Image hosting services[edit]

Didn't there use to be a comparison of image hosting services page or something? I can't seem to find it. Copysan (talk) 06:59, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I wasn't aware of it, but there may have been. Maybe it was deleted. Rivertorch (talk) 07:07, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
I was hoping that somebody would remember the name of it, that way I can request WP:UNDELETE and retrieve it for my personal use even if it was removed.
