(adapted from Philip Greenspun's Copyright Notice)

Unless otherwise credited, all the text and pictures on this website are copyright 2004-2015 Arnaud Miège. Here are the terms of my license...

Internet material used on this site

A number of photos are used on this web site (on my music and Formula 1 links pages), which have been download from the internet and are believed to be in the public domain. If you think any of these pictures infringe on your copyright, please contact me and I will remove them.

Printing/downloading of material for personal use

Feel free to print or download anything you like from my site (photos, movies, text, publications, etc...) for personal use.

Non-commercial web use of photos

If you have a personal home page or a non-commercial website, please feel free to use my photographs with hyperlinked credit. Acceptable HTML is

That way people know who took the picture and also can find my online copyright statement. You do not need to pay for usage.

Commercial Web use of photos

If you would like to use my pictures on a commercial page, then please

  1. register the URL with me by sending me an e-mail to
  2. add the hyperlinked credit as above

You do not need to pay for usage either, although I reserve the right to deny usage at my discretion.

Note: Remember that the pictures of people on my pages are not model-released. Advertising usage of photos (e.g. brochures, catalogues, print ads) is very different from editorial usage of photos (e.g. newspaper and magazine articles, books). You cannot use pictures in advertising (e.g. an online product brochure or anything else that is selling) without getting a model release from any person whose image is recognisable in the photo. You might also have problems if an image contains a recognisable physical property, e.g. Disneyland. One of the reasons advertisers pay $1000+ for images from stock agencies is that those agencies have generally already gotten the relevant releases.


Please feel free to redistribute via hardcopy or e-mail for non-commercial purposes any of my writings, but please don't break up documents and please attribute the source in such a way that someone can find the most up-to-date version on the web.

Please do not ever copy any of my (textual) content to a public web server. Link to my pages instead; I won't break any of your links. The problem with you putting a page on your server is that the search engines will find it and send my readers to your server instead. Thus they will be deprived of my latest content.

Any publication or other material available on this website bearing a copyright mark may not be used for commercial purposes without prior approval by the copyright holder (and that's not always me!).
