You've said that this image was provided by the Volusia County Tourism Board (Government). Copyright should not be an issue.. It is very possible that the image is copyrighted. Could you clarify this or add a link to the page where the image was found? Thanks. -- Fastestdogever 10:46, 21 August 2007 (EDT)

I exchanged emails with the County's webmaster (I know her casually) and she said using it on the Wikipedia/Wikitravel sites was "no problem." Please advise me how to document this? The County is eager to promote tourism (brings tax money coming in) so using any of their materials to promote the area is not a problem for them. Gamweb 12:43, 21 August 2007 (EDT)
Actually, confirmation that it is ok to use material on Wikitravel is not sufficient to meet the terms of our licensing, because everything we use must be reusable by anyone for any purpose & is permanently released into the commons (no future copyrights may be applied). If you do get permission to release the image into the commons (main terms = reusable and adaptable by anyone for any purpose, forever), then we can keep this image. --Peter Talk 04:50, 30 August 2007 (EDT)
Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons has determined that images produced by a Government Unit in the State of Florida (with a few exceptions) is considered to be Public Domain. Gamweb 11:12, 10 October 2008 (EDT)


Hey! Always nice to see my pictures are getting more viewing outside of Wikipedia proper. Keep up the good work. Cheers! :) -- 11:35, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

Sorry, it's me. --Ebyabe 11:37, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
