Thread: Leeching is cool?

    Default Leeching is cool?

    Find it sort of amusing,

    http://forums.clubsnap.com/showthread.php?t=178563

    I remember seeing threads complaining about our photos being hotlinked or leeched to forums like sggirls, hardwarezone etc. Everyone starts talking about protection, ethics blah blah.

    But when we hotlinked photos from other sites, without giving credits nothing, all I can see is "wow very nice pictures", "fantastic", "awesom"...

    Isn't it kinda contradicting? Or this rule applies to gals photos only? Your views?


    p.s Not targeting anyone, just for discussion purposes.

    I think it only applies to gal pics hotlinked to sites of ill repute. If your landscape pics were linked to leica's forum would you complain?

    depands who link my pix, if it is linked by leica themself I'll get my lawyers to complain to them This will ensure more public exposure for my pixs and at the same time can sue for at least a D2X Kill 2 birds with 1 stone

    But what about people snapping your photos secretly and posting it up in forums? From one forum, people leech it to other forums... You knew of it from your friend. What can you do about it?
    Have you read IT???

    The correct way is to go after the person who took your photo in the first place.

    I believe the poster of the photos should at least include the original link and credit the photographer.
