Dear Julia: I'm reasonably sure that the suggestion made by the Chinese studies librarian is based on a faulty understanding of copyright laws. If you want to be sure that you're not infringing upon any person's rights existing under the current copyright laws of the PRC, you should think about obtaining the advice of a lawyer who is fully familiar with those laws.

Wow! Your website is a wonderful blog with photos, references, and personal fieldwork on processions. Makes me realize I need to do more research of personal blogs. I guess we write these blogs hoping others will read them, but who knows if our search engine optimization efforts are making our parade/procession content visible enough.Thanks for finding this blog and linking me up to your research.
