as long as u can see the pic, u can copy it... so the best way is to watermark it, and do it BIG.... haha...
some pro like adam burton don't watermark, but the pic he publish is too small to be admired ... so this is another way...
both way hinders the viewer from fully appreciating your work....
this sure is a good thread for every photographers.
i'm using flickr, and closed down multiply, cause of their T&C, and i post SOME on Facebook page, just to reach out to facebook friends
flickr still seems one of the better host with good T&Cs
This should be Stickied!!!
I am offended because another guy on the forums used my image in his buy & sell thread here >> http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=713288
He posted my images on his thread without asking for my permission nor at least crediting me. Yes, I sold that same lens to him last month but nonetheless I believe I own the rights to my own photos right?
Is there any legal action I can take? unfortunately, my images were hosted on photobucket...
from tnc at photobucket

if he is hotlinking the pictures from your photobucket account then just break his link
i will issue him an infraction and delete his thread for piracy
btw did you ask him to not use your photos?

as photographers ourselves, if we do not care if we use other peoples photos, then what about the non photographers.
Honor and integrity is what the world is losing

Hey Mr Ortega,
with regards to the petition, just tell me where to sign!
We must watch out for each others, professionals, semi pros and amateurs, and internationally.
If we don't care for our art, who will?
I had people emailing me when they saw my product pictures misused on some foreign online trading auctions.
Likewise I make it a point to alert fellow photographers and image artists whenever I spotted such things.
Today I just alerted a well known international PJ when I saw a local blogshop misusing his photo, and I feel good doing the right thing.
