Can I use the photos of MaidSafe team members?

Hi, my name is Jinho. Thank you for having interest in this post.

I am promoting MaidSafe in South Korea and it makes me take pride in myself to contribute my time on this great vision for the better network. While making some promotional contents, I get to think that I need approval to use the photos of MaidSafe team members on https://maidsafe.net/company.html.
People who want to know MaidSafe further in Korea have asked me some information of the MaidSafe team members. To give them more credible information, I would like to make use of the photos on the webpage.

Is it possible to use the photos of MaidSafe team members on the web page? I have no idea where I can get their clearance. Should I contact the people one by one?

I’ll ping @nicklambert here (using he “@”) for you since he can answer such questions. Without pinging him it might not get noticed by him or David.

Hi @Jinho_Jang and thanks @neo.

It should be fine but it does depend on what additional information you will include and how they are going to be used?
Many thanks.

Hi @nicklambert,

I’ve just translated all English text on https://maidsafe.net/company.html into Korean briefly. It includes the company introduction and our goals.

Also, The contents will be refined as a Facebook posting to introduce MaidSafe on our facebook page.
(https://www.facebook.com/maidsafekorea/) You can run through what I have done so far on the Facebook page. I am planning to use the photos on one slide with a sentence of ‘MaidSafe is a small team, comprised of: thinkers, inventors, tinkerers, PHDs, engineers and designers.’ as written in the web page.

Thank you

Thanks @Jinho_Jang I like what you have done on the page, not a FB user myself, and my Korean is non existent, but it looks pretty active. Fine for you to re use images and text as they are/were currently presented on our company page.

Wondering if it would be worth making it clearer within the banner that it is a MaidSafe Korea page and not a MaidSafe page so that users understand it is a different company. Fitting the word Korea into the banner would help achieve this.

Thanks again!

@nicklambert he seems to have registered MaidSafes.net
Unless the domain belongs to you guys, it should be clear that website is not the official one.

I think Maidsafes.net is a MaidSafe Asia (now MaidSafe Solutions) site.
