Don't just take something from another member here at Pan, or anywhere else on the web for that matter, without asking permission, or finding out who holds the rights to it and what you have to do to be able to post it.
Helping yourself to images that other people have made for their own use is as much plagiarism as copying text. Not only is it extremely bad manners, it is against the Pan Charter, and also against the law.
You will not post any item(s) that is (are) in violation of another party's copyright or any other intellectual property rights.
1. If you obtain permission from the owner of the material, you may post it with proper citations (author's name, link to original source material if applicable).
2. If you are interested in sharing material from another party's website, (depending on the owner's rules), appropriate citations must be employed, and no more that a paragraph of the orginal source material is to be posted. You must include a link to the document, so interested readers may read the material in full at the site of origin. (This prevents stealing hits from that site.)
