8 June 2018: Copyright issues

Image owners are entitled to copyright protection, which means you should not copy their images without their permission or payment. However, some image owners use "extortion companies", which demand money just for linking to a website, which, in our opinion, is perfectly legal. In any event, we are restricting our use of links to images we do not own, and are using the Block Site browser app to ensure we do not link to any site that sells even some medical photos:

www.adamimages.com
www.asklepiosmedicalatlas.com
www.depositphotos.com
www.dreamstime.com/
www.fotosearch.com
www.istockphoto.com
www.medicalimages.com
www.sciencephoto.com
www.shutterstock.com
www.stockfreeimages.com


We are also removing links to Nature publishing images (including Modern Pathology), because Nature has blocked our website in the past.
