In no event shall the Site Owner be held responsible for any damages arising from reliance on the information contained and/or its use.

The Site contains images and graphics produced and owned both by the Site owner itself and by third parties, and covered by different types of licenses. In order to ensure maximum transparency and respect for copyrights, the origin and type of license are indicated (when possible) at the bottom of the articles. Below are the details on the license types used for the images:
fair use: in some cases, copyrighted images are used without prior authorization from the rights holder when, in good faith, the principle of "fair use" is believed to be applicable (Article 70 paragraph 1-bis of the Italian Law January 9, 2008, no. 2). This is done because the images are distributed for free, in low resolution, for informational/educational purposes only, and the source is attributed, especially when no other free or licensed images are available. The "fair use" is indicated in the image description. However, these images are still to be considered as copyrighted by the rights holder(s), and all relevant limitations apply.
For more details on Creative Commons licenses, please check the link provided in the image description and the official Creative Commons guide.
[GFDL] o [GNU-FDL] GNU Free Documentation License: that is a copyleft license for free content, originally created for texts and software but also used for images. In general, it allows the redistribution of the work for commercial purposes and modification, provided that it is released under the same license. For details on the GFD license, please refer to the official website of the GNU project.
public domain: some of the images on the Site are in the public domain either due to the expiration of legal protection terms according to the laws of the country where they were created, or because they were voluntarily released by the author as such. This includes images for which it was not possible to determine the copyright, but are reasonably believed to be in good faith (e.g. historical images). On Lapůta, these images are indicated with the abbreviation [PD]. In accordance with technical limitations, and whenever possible, all available and relevant information is provided to trace the source. Images in the public domain are excluded from the site's copyright, except for those that have been modified to create a new image (derivative works). For example, historical images that have been colorized are not necessarily in the public domain, even if the original image was.
