Rights to Tintin material in Sweden

#1 · Posted: 17 Feb 2005 19:14
In Sweden everybody has to do a big project in the end of the third year of high school. I am doing mine about Tintin; how historical events affected the stories and how they are portrayed.
I am going to do a homepage but I am not too sure about who to ask if I want to use scanned pictures from the books on the homepage. Those are needed in many cases, like explaining how the uniform of Boris resembles the one of an SS-officer, etc.

So my question is who to ask about this.

Thank you / Erik

Hi Seger - welcome to the board!

I’d ask your teacher, if I were you; rules governing copyright material are complicated, but in most places you have a right to “fair usage” for educational study and review purposes. If your teacher has set the project, they should have an idea of what constitutes fair use.

There have been several threads covering the topic of copyright on this site, which you might like to read, but I’d advise you that a lot of it is theoretical, and you cannot hold the site responsible if the information is wrong.

Good luck with the project!

Hej och välkommen.

I really doubt anything bad will happen, but ask your teacher to make sure. If you really want to make sure, try contacting Bonniers, the Swedish publisher.

Igen, välkommen till forumet,
