Just a reminder that most of the first (or A) grade sporting fixtures have entry terms and conditions that restrict what you can do with any photos you take at these events. Cricket Australia, Tennis Australia, Australian Football League, Australian Grand Prix, National Rugby League, V8 Supercars, Moto GP and not limited to just these, all have conditions of entry that allow photos taken at their events to be only used for private, personal purposes.
Posting these photos onto Ausphotography breaches these Event entry T&C. As these organisations do not view internet forums as private, personal use.
Please be aware that if you attend a first grade sporting event, you generally cannot place any photos taken, on Ausphotography. There are a few exceptions (depending on the T&C). Most of these organisations have restrictions that involve photos of the players, match entertainment, etc. If you have taken a photo of the crowd, or a wide angle shot of the stadium, you can post those, if the T&C directly relate to the sports persons and on-field events only. So please make sure you read and understand the terms and conditions of entry to any of these events, in relation to photography, and abide by them.
Posting photos taken at these events could (if the relevant authority wanted to) mean that Ausphotography has a "Take Down Notice" applied to it, which could just be a demand to remove the relevant photo(s) from the AP site. It could include a request for a members personal details (they may want to contact the member to pursue legal action) or at the other extreme, it could see Ausphotography completely and permanently removed from the net. We have received several take-down notices in the past, and one request for a personal details so they could pursue the matter further. We refused to provide those personal details without a court order.
So please make yourself familiar with the entry T&C for any event you attend, in relation to taking photos at the event, and apply those rules to yourself, and note that private, domestic, personal use, generally does not include posting the photos onto forums.
I will try and edit this post and add links to the relevant entry conditions for the various sports. Please be aware these links may become invalid, and the entry conditions may change, from the date of posting. So we do not ensure their accuracy, and it is up to each member to ensure they meet the entry conditions at the time of the event.
