Bonjour, je désire utiliser certaines planches squelettiques dans le cadre d'une exposition permanente pour un musée d'archéologie. Est-ce que les images sont libre de droits d'utilisations ?

Quels sont les critères d’utilisations dans le cadre d'exposition?

Merci pour les informations

Dear Archaeozoo, we are preparing a new exhibition in the National museum Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania and we are planing to show some animal bones in the kitchen section. Would you give us a permission to use pictures of carp, hare, red deer, wild boar, pig and bison?

Dear archaeozoo and Michel Coutureau,
I am currently designing a sheet for use at Oxford Archaeology to record articulated and semi-articulated animal remains in the field. Would you give us permission to use your vectorised drawing of a sheep (Ovis) or cow (Bos) for this? I can send you a PDF image of the sheet if helpful.

Bonjour, Nous souhaiterions utiliser les silhouettes de Renne, Renard, Harfang, Lièvre, Lagopède dans nos salles d'exposition permanente afin de présenter l'exploitation des ressources animales au Magdalénien. Merci de nous indiquer les conditions d'utilisation.
Par ailleurs, nous sommes à la recherche de silhouettes de salmonidé et de spermophile. En avez-vous à nous proposer svp?
Bien cordialement
