HID lighting forever! Slap Count: 1

Are we allowed to upload lighting related documents? « on: January 22, 2021, 04:46:17 PM » Author: HPS_250
For example, I have some PDF files of older Westinghouse HID lamp catalogs, and some files of older street lighting specification sheets and brochures. Can I upload PDF documents? If it is allowed, should I just upload them into the gallery?

I like all kinds of lighting, except for LED, which I classify as a disease.

As long as there aren't too many, then usually yes. It also depends on whether you need permission to do so; some commercial documents require permission from the copyright holder.

Also, you must give attribution to the original author/photographer.

I only have 4 documents to upload. I will need to find out who the original author is and if the documents are copyrighted.

Hello HPS_250,

i don't see any problem if you show an old catalog as a PDF document.
These catalogs were public. You don't copy a book completely.
That would be a different topic, also legally.
