Licenses and author rights

CZ   EN  
You can define your own author rights for your images in BioLib (either globally for all your images, or different for particular images). By selecting a predefined license for your images you can better express your which author rights you wish to retain and which rights you wish to give up when someone wants to use your image in some way.

If no license is selected and no copyright statement is provided for the image, it is considered as a copyrighted image and it is not allowed to use it in any way unless its author gives you his permission.
Copyright - All rights reserved
In order to use this work you have to ask its author for permission. This doesn't mean that author won't allow you to use the image (or use it freely), but you have to ask him.
