Today, clubsnapper "Jerry G" and flickr member "Kajren" accused me of stealing other clubsnappers' photos and posting them on my flickr account. He has a point. Although I have PP'ed the photos for the purposes of giving constructive criticism in critique corner, I should have mentioned that in flickr. As a result, I have deleted the photos in question from my flickr account and will refrain from posting PP'ed photos of other clubsnappers in CS in the future.
"Jerry G" and "Kajren"'s posts are appended below FYI.
Post by "Jerry G" on asterix07's thread "venice" in Critique corner
I noticed that the mod "Zaren" has been posting people's work from this forum on his own Flickr account. asterix07's beautiful picture of Venice suddenly appeared in Zaren's Flickr account without any acknowledgement to asterix himself. I wanna know if any permission has been granted on the owner's part. Besides that, ALOT of other people's work on this forum has been posted on Zaren's Flickr, you can go check.
Even if you made some PP on other's work, does that entitle you to put it on your Flickr?
Can someone clarify?
Makes me wonder if posting my work here for critiquing is safe or not.
Flickr message from "Kajren"
Subject: Explanation for stolen photos?
I've been a lurker on Clubsnap for some time now and I notice you are posting other people's photos on your Flickr account. I pointed that out in a particular thread and my post was deleted.
Here's an example: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/criti...00-venice.html notice how asterix07 photo has suddenly become your work on your Flickr.
Just because you did a basic PP on someone else's photo; as you always, does that entitle you to post it as your work on Flickr? Without giving the orignal artist his credit?
Please take a look and I'm expressing concern because this is not a good example. Your are breaking media law, infringement of intellectual properties on multiple occasions. I'll be reporting your online portfolio to the IPOS and ministry of law.
