    Copyright question

    I made a website with wix, and bought it. Now when it comes to copyright, I am pretty unsure what to do. I have read that I can slap a copyright on the site if everything in the site is written and coded by me. However, this is not the case, as I designed it with wix, and I advertised other websites on my site, I dont know if that counts. Anyway, could you help me with this copyright confusion? Thanks.

    public domain fonts and typefaces

    Are all the fonts and typefaces that are available on the templates public domain? In other words, can any of the fonts and typefaces available on the website templates be used for commercial purposes?

    Hello, I have my own business website hosted on my own server but I absolutely LOVE one of your backgrounds. I would like to redesign my old website and use a background from one of your templates. Please could someone confirm if I would be allowed to use it or not?  If not, please could you let me know how I could obtain copyright permission. Many thanks.

    Hi, Can I use the text of the templates freely on my wix website? A lot of them has some catching phrases that are nice, are they free of use? For example, on this one it says "Some people dream of success. We make it happen" Can i copy it for my website? Thanks! :-)

      Hi,

       

      Sure you can! The Wix design platform, including the templates, is totally free for any user. We do have a premium offer for a small fee that enables our users to get more storage and bandwidth if they need it, the option to remove the Wix tags, and the option to connect their Wix design to their own domain name.

       

      You can find out more about it here. If you don't need any of these options, then you can use it for free as much as you like.

      For helpful tips about creating a great site using Wix, click here.

       

      Please inform us whether you need further assistance.

    Hello,

    What are your policies concerning sites you host which post copyrighted and/or privately-owned material?  I can provide more details, but just wanted to ask first.  There is a site hosted here that routinely posts transcripts of chat sessions and forum posts from a private, members-only web site.  The person posting the transcripts is apparently a member of the site, and we thought he/she had been cut off from the site, but apparently not.

    Thanks!

    Hello!  I'm hoping to upload stories and photos of which I've created onto my Wix website. 

    Now, from what I've gathered here, even though I would post these original texts and pictures on my website, there's still a chance they would not be copyrighted under my name? And if the text may be copyrighted, will I have to separately copyright the pictures as well, or does it all count as one giant product?

    You can probably tell that I'm new to this electronic publishing thing, ha-ha!
