Images featured in Abbott's Patch Collection, whether on this website or our Flickr Pro account, are protected by a copyright license under the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs CC BY-NC-ND framework. This specific license grants permission for others to download our works and share them with others, provided that they appropriately credit Abbott's Patch Collection. It is important to note that, under this license, any form of modification or commercial use of these images is strictly prohibited.
To ensure the protection of my patch images, I will refrain from sending any non-watermarked scans or images. The primary purpose of adding watermarks is to prevent unauthorized reproductions. Additionally, I have invested significant resources, including time, money, and effort, into this project, and the watermark serves as an identifier of the origin of the images. By taking these precautions, I can maintain the integrity of my creative work and safeguard my intellectual property.
I kindly request that you do not ask to trade or buy any patches from my personal collection; I will not be able to respond to such messages or emails. Thank you for your understanding.
