I'm posting this here because I'm not exactly sure where this sort of discussion should be posted, and since it hinges around some of the graphics that I want to use on my website, I thought I could at least start here.
I'm in the middle of developing a website, which for the moment I'd like to keep under wraps, but the gist of the issue is this: I'd like to be able to use images that I've downloaded from computer hardware OEM's websites (i.e. Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc) on my site. I understand that I need written permission to do so, and that's totally fine. What I'm asking is this: has anyone out there had any experience asking for such permission, and if so, what advice can you give someone who is trying to get said permission. I'm somewhat new to the business, and copyright law is nowhere near my forte.
I searched Daniweb and didn't find any discussion on this issue. I've also spent a good amount of time searching Google, and, while I've found some sites that have outlined WHAT I need to do, they never really go into any sort of detail on HOW it needs to be done.
Thanks for your time!
