for this Site:
Can I link directly to
- This site uses software
which prevents direct linking (also known as hotlinking).
Images will also only display under my domain name.
Any other domains will produce a blank screen and the
message that the image has expired. Since I pay for my bandwidth, and bandwidth theft from
this site has become extreme, I have been forced to
enact these measures. Note that direct linking is also called bandwidth
theft and some sites experience it to such a degree they are forced to close.
I don't understand.
What's the harm in using your bandwidth?
- This site pays for
its hosting. In the price is included the right to transfer
a limited amount of data each month. This is bandwidth
usage. Once the site exceeds that I have to pay for
more bandwidth. Any linking directly to my images means
you are using my bandwidth and not contributing to the
cost. I have already been forced to move hosts, increase
my bandwidth, and
rename/remove files due to theft.
- It should also be
noted that all images on this site are copyrighted,
they are not public domain. This means correct permission has
to be gained to use them.
But you collected
your images off other pages around the Internet, so why shouldn't
- This is incorrect.
Tiger Territory does not collect from other Web sites.
Contact is made directly with copyright
holders, and permission gained to display images. Written
permission is held from printers, publishers, artists
and photographers to display their work. Many
of the images you see here are exclusive to this site
and will not be found elsewhere; these images are never
What about the book scans I see on your site?
- The Webmistress holds
written permission letters for these items. The letters
come from publishers who hold the rights to the publication,
or from the original artists, authors and photographers. These
people have generously permitted their work to be
Why didn't you accept my image donation?
- This site presently has a pool of over 300 photographers
(and counting) and thousands of images. It is most likely copyright
could not be clarified to my satisfaction. In that case
it matters not how good it is, it won't appear here.
It is the practice of this site to respond to all e-mails,
so you should have received an answer regarding this.
Why didn't you accept that really cool Public
Domain image I sent?
- It is my practice
to try and produce items not readily seen elsewhere
and Public Domain images are commonly found across the
Net. Even more than that, images claimed to be in the
Public Domain often are not and I do everything possible
to avoid problems arising from copyright issues.
Why didn't you accept my suggestion to modify
your text? You know you're wrong about [insert subject]?
- Accuracy is important
and where it is proven the site is incorrect text will
be almost immediately changed. However, many claims
sent to this site are spurious, proven
wrong when investigated, or do not contain enough information
to be adequately followed up. Please send all information
you can, including where you saw the item, links, addresses
for contact, etc. All submissions are confidential.
What if I find
my property on your Web site and I didn't give permission?
- As Webmaster of this
site I do everything in my power to ensure the images
used are copyright cleared. In the years Tiger Territory
has been operating this problem has only occurred once -- with
two images which someone claimed to have rights to,
but did not. If, despite all attempts to ensure an image
supplier is genuine, they prove not to be, the rightful
owner will have the philosophy behind this site explained
and be invited to donate their image for display. If
they wish to have the image removed it will be done
immediately. In both cases they will receive a personal

Due to excessive requests
for links, Tiger Territory has been forced to develop a
linking policy. This site will now only link to sites which
meet the following two requirements:
- 1. The site requesting
a link is itself a site directly benefiting and publicising
- 2. They also provide
material which is displayed on this Web site.
Other sites are welcome
to link to Tiger Territory and a banner is provided below
for those wanting one. You may deep link to a specific page,
however this is not recommended as a Web site update may
mean the page name is changed and your link becomes a 404
error. It is requested that you notify
me of any links, so I can write and thank you.
The correct URL
for linking is:
