Copyright for Publicly available Information
I am working on a site and needed feedback from users if specific content would be covered under copyright or not.
Lets take a general example. If I have a car / bike site and I get information from manufacturers website with car / bike information like photos, technical specs etc can they initiate any copyright action against the web owner? Or say if I run a mobile selling site where in I get all the information regarding the mobile from manufacturers site.
Really speaking, this is general information available across but I guess the manufacturer might have copyrights over the content. For example if we take car example
Car Picture ? Can this be copyright as pictures may be unique
Now all these are general infos regarding the car so what are the implications if we use this info
Or is it that as manufacturers get free publicity they never initiate action?
