    Hi Wynona

    I'm not aware that Richard Mohler's wallpapers (or any of the others) are copyrighted, however, I have included the link to Richard's 'DeviantArt' site and from there you can send him a message asking whether you can alter his work by adding a Windows 10 Logo to it and if so, will he require a credit mentioned and a link back to his site with what you have produced. I'm sure Richard (and others) will be fine with it, as long as you are not altering or changing their original design in any way and only adding something to them such as a Windows 10 Logo.

    Many of the other wallpapers have been downloaded from dedicated 'Wallpaper' sites, so I cannot see how that would present any copyright issues, but then again, I'm not an expert in this area.

    Wynona, I will join 'DeviantArt' now and ask him to save you the trouble if you like.

    I hope that answers your query.

    Wynona, I have just joined 'DeviantArt' and sent 'Relhom' (Richard Mohler) from 'DeviantArt' a message and will let you know what his response is when I receive it.

    As a general thing ...

    Copyright is not something that has to be added to an original work, but an intrinsic status that exists by the act of creation of the work. If no statement is made reducing the copyright level then all rights reserved has to be assumed by default.

    Copyright is a complex legal system which in the US lead to a recent legal case where an animal rights group has tried to claim copyright on a selfie to a monkey who pressed the shutter of a photographer's camera.

    Most of the images on sites such as deviant art are all rights reserved but may be assumed ok to use unaltered acceptable with attribution, but some artists will allow more when they are asked.

    So basically you should always ask the artist of any work for permission to do anything with their work, whatever it's format and medium used

    Hi @Wynona and @Barman58

    I'm pleased to say that I have just heard back from Richard Mohler from DeviantArt and he has granted permission to use his wallpapers in @Borg386 thread.

    I have included a copy of my communication with Richard for you. Kind Regards, Neil

As long as you credit the owner and include a link to their work it should be fine unless otherwise stated by the owner of the work. If one isn't sure, send the owner of the work a message requesting permission to use his or her work for the purposes of this forum clearly stating that you will not be altering or changing their original work, but adding to it with a Windows 10 Logo for example.
