    Any comments about legal stuff?

    Yes. First of all, you should know that each wallchart that is sold on this website is copyrighted by UsefulCharts Publishing and should therefore not be duplicated and/or redistributed via any means, physical or electronic, without direct permission from the owner, Matt Baker.

    Second, when it comes to the individual images used within my wallcharts, I would like to state that I have made every effort to only use images that are either in the public domain or that are available via a Creative Commons license. In the latter case, I provide attributions when required. If I have unknowingly used your image without permission or proper attribution, please let me know asap at

    Third, please note that the charts that I make for the blog section of this website do sometimes contain individual images that are copyrighted by others (e.g. - pictures of actors from TV shows). These individual images are used under the doctrine of the fair use and because of the copyright associated with them, I am unable to sell printed versions of those charts. No exceptions.
