    THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: Many or most of the above images
along with the codes and texts, that were scanned, photographed and written by
the owner of Banknotes.com at the turn of the second millenium, were copied
and some were altered (removing our own copyright notices from banknotes)
over a decade later by a webmaster at the
Bank of Ghana website and then, a
few years down the road, they were copied from that page at Bank of Ghana
website by Jack Bornholm, the editor at Wikimedia Commons (Wikipedia).
Jack Bornholm did not obtain permissions from us nor from Bank of Ghana and
posted them on Wikipedia and Wikimedia, reporting wrong author and wrong
source of these images. Wikimedia and Mr. Jack Bornholm keep refusing to
provide proper credits and to correct names of the authors on Wikimedia
and Wikipedia and are silently and anonymously reverting all the corrections
that are being made to the autorship record of these images of ours. We
protest such uncivilized and impudent behaviour.

The following is just one of many examples of theft and alteration of the images:

Altered (copyright notice of ours obfuscated) and stolen image on BoG page (2011):

https://www.bog.gov.gh/banking/currency/banknotes-of-ghana and click on item # GH-3

Altered (copyright notice of ours obfuscated) and stolen image on Wikimedia (2015):

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:5_Ghana_Pounds_(1958).png

The original, unaltered image FRONT:

The original, unaltered image BACK:

Webmaster at BoG has clearly removed and never contacted us for cooperation,
donation and permission of any kind. The uncivilized treatment of our own photographic
works, images is what makes it absolutely unacceptable such insolent behaviour.

Here's the PROOF of "who was there first", on Archive.org:

Archive.org record (21-DEC-2001) and the archived direct link to the image.

A central bank of a country usually does not print banknotes; printing house
prints banknotes for the country's currency. Bank of Ghana may have paid
a designed to design all these banknotes and they may have paid a printing
factory in some developed country to print all these banknotes and we have
purchased these banknotes as collectibles. The Central Bank is only a
distributor of the money as spendable currency. Banks do not usually
distribute, issue or release photographs of paper money. Photographs,
artists do. One does not have to own the object to create a photograph
which you become author of. Some of our photos were marked with copyright,
yet the copyright notice was removed with intention to hide the fact that they
along with our texts were stolen intellectual property.
     
    If you are looking to purchase Ghanaian banknotes, then please visit our Store
instead. This is a
Curency Gallery page and some, most or even all of the banknotes
displayed above on this page may not be available to
purchase or to photograph.
