Noob question

So I haven't made a chop in years and I thought why not start again! :-)
I decided to visit Dagger Bay.
I made an account a long time ago but never done anything with it, shame on me,I know!

There's a contest wich inspired me to try something out; Make It Glass.
After I searched for some sources, I started chopping.
And in a long time, I actually finished.

Before I submit,I thought maybe it's a good idea the read some FAQ's!!!
There's 1 question I have about the next rule:
"Your image contains source material that you do not have a legal right to use. It’s your responsibility to determine if your source images are copyrighted. You must ask for permission from the copyright holder to use the image BEFORE submitting it to a contest and you must post a copyright release statement in your comments."

I found my sources on DeviantArt in the "Resources & Stock Images" section.
The creators of the images allow other people to use there images.
I must only let them know where I have used there image.

So what about the rule where it says: "...and you must post a copyright release statement in your comments."
I don't understand what is expected from me here.

Good question... it's why I don't read the FAQ's.
I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks." I said, "Don't mention it."

Bad Dog, Bad :lol:

I'm not the QM for that deck, but my reading on it is that's acceptable. If a QM has questions about your source pictures they will ask. If you can point back to the page where it has been released for derivative works that's all that's required. I'm sure one of them will be by at some point to answer more fully. Spot checking the other recent entries I'm not seeing anything in the author's notes.

Well, I guess I'll just enter, and see what happens.

The best thing to do when you are not sure, is to include the author and site in your comments. Like "original background by Somebody (on DeviantArt)." Some pictures might require you linking back to them (or the site they are on). Include that in your comments as well. Happy Chopping, glad to have you here. :D
Aargh!

Most people on Deviant Art make it clear whether their images can be used or not. If they don't specifically say you may not use them then you are probably fine.
