They need to start a Stolen Photos forum section.

No kidding. She doesn't claim they're hers in this case, but says she found them on the web, but there is NO attempt to credit photographers.

Once again it seems that the person is educated and should be aware of copyright!

My occupation is...
Author and inspirational speaker
I went to College at...
Indiana University at Indianapolis

Directly from her bio.

This is definitely one of the "big-f'ing-deal" scenarios, for me. Webshots, Flikr, etc... they're just for personal albums. Photos that the person collected that they appreciate.

They're not making money off it, or representing it as their own work.

She has a bunch of lightning shots.Maybe some of them are by 21.gif M.O.C.

i agree completely. as a designer, i save everything i like that's not bolted down. this appears just to be a personal album of photos that she enjoys looking at. this isn't beeing profited off of, or plagiarism on some other art site. it's just a collection of "pretty things"

But Webshots allows and even encourages downloads. The image I first noticed is for sale on DPC prints, which could be impacted.

how good of a print can you get from something that's 500x400 @ 72 dpi? anything above 2x3" is just going to look mediocre.

i just don't see the 'harm done' in this instance

the title of her album is "My Favorites". i think she is simply showing people photos she has found that she considers great... not which photos she herself has taken. which could be misleading but i dont think she was trying to be malicious. am i wrong?

It's more than just photos too. There's a lot of just regular art work in there as well. I saw an image with a neat idea for expert editing in there.

No, it appears that you are correct. However. . . rather than showing the world that pretty image, show them that talented photographer!

Regardless of her intent, she should ask for permission and respect the creator's wishes.

Since she's an author, do you think she'd appreciate me offering her books for free on my website?
08/16/2007 10:06:18 PM · #19
Yeah if she's stealing the images, I don't know how accurate her story is..

oh and.. I think we the photographers should be allowe to mark our pictures, Ie put our names in the corner. Thats all it takes to copyright an image gaurenteed, and makes it alot easy to persue legal action.

This one is from 21.gif Larus.

I agree that she is showing what she likes, call it flattery maybe? I suspect that would be up to each photographer.

How would voting be anonymous with this?

YES! I can put the whole section on "Ignore," right?

No way. There are too many jockers and softies on here. If they could see the person the photographer whose image they were voting on, it would definitely effect the results.

No, all it takes to copyright an image is to click the shutter.

If you also register the images with the copyright office, it expands your legal options and remedies.

No copyright mark is necessary, however, it does make the "I didn't know it was copyrighted when I stole it" excuse sound even lamer in court than it already is.

I don't mind the idea BUT it should happen after voting like the comentators paper bag thing...

I have no idea how hard this would be to set up maybe to hard but if possible have a AUTO Signature where you could add your name in the submit photo page, this would only be added to the photo automatically after the voting is completed and the results are calculated. This is also the time that submitted photo's go public.

Something to think about maybe.
