Why is there a logo and copyright notice on all photos and seating charts?


Unfortunately, there is a faction of the internet community that steals content and presents it as their own. We are forced to protect ourselves otherwise they would have the same content we would have without spending any effort or expense to get it. Our branding is one of the most important steps we can take to ensure our survival. We would prefer not to do this, but the site would be gone as quickly as it took to copy images if we do not. As to the degree of intrusion, these are judgment calls we had to make, and we felt we needed to err on the side of caution, or everybody loses. We feel that the marks do not interfere with the function of the photo, only its beauty. If you would like to get only a few unmarred pictures for a specific purpose, please feel free to contact us.
