Intellectual Property

Materials on this website are my own original work: including the poetry, stories, videos and photographs. I make a special effort to personally frame and photograph the images for my personal stories and poetry.

All content on this website including photos, videos, and text is protected under the Copyright Act 1968 and may not be used for any purpose without the permission in writing of Melinda J. Irvine.

Sometimes I use photographs and commercial imagery for my business blogs: when used I acknowledge the source. In my blog articles I reference and acknowledge the ideas, professional and creative work of other people.

Please respect the artistic achievements of others, we are all creative beings and have the power within to produce our own works. There is a pride and sense of fulfilment in that. We can learn by acknowledging the vision of others and in doing so, build on our collective knowledge, expanding together.
