The perils of copyright

Post  Admin on Tue Apr 08, 2014 6:46 pm





Am publishing a link to this story as the subject comes up occasionally. Copyright is a serious matter and can be costly.

Why should I spend years on courses in photography and buy equipment equivalent in cost to the price of a small house and then get the fruits of my labour lifted and published by others without even an acknowledgement?

One idiot on a Rochdale-related FB page even said that by doing so, you are doing the owner of the image a favour by publicising their work.

The Internet is crammed with breach of copyright material which I am sure is used by thousands daily. Regardless it is still an offence to utilise someone elses 'work' without permission. Guilty as charged mi' lud. But I do wish someone would sue me for huge loads of dosh - the publicity would most definately be worth it.  Wink Laughing Shocked Smile Very Happy Very Happy

Are those grainy old black and white Polaroid photos of you sat in the Bernie Inn still doing the rounds Atlas?

You know, the ones of you stuffing rolls of tax free, grubby £10 notes in your pocket as you sit there sipping a large glass of House Red?

Good for them! Now if they concentrate on getting the facts right on stories they copy and paste from other sites that would be brilliant,
