nor a single photo? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) August 22, 2006.


Following email discussion with Robert, and discussion on Wikipedia talk:Copyright problems, we need to remove all photos by Robert. Originally he was happy for images to be used on wikipedia, heowever this meant that they would need to be released under {{cc-by-sa}} which is too permisive for him. It may be possible to include some photos under fair use here, provided there is some commentary.

Altmans photos are:

External links[edit]

all external links were removed. while no reason was given, there is a very real possibility that the links were to sites that robert altman may not have given permission to post his photos to (even though they give copyright notice on the pages). to be safe, i returned only the link to his official site, which should be enough, and acceptable, for this article. if someone removes this link, i would appreciate it being discussed or explained here, in addition to any reasons for the other link removals (even if the other links are acceptable under WP guidelines, they were probably excessive, but we still need to say why we do things. i know i often forget to explain minor edits, which i will try to fix in future.)Mercurywoodrose (talk) 15:47, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
