If you want to post your pictures on this site it's probably best to watermark them.

However, you all read the 'terms of agreement' and clicked 'I accept' when you joined up, correct?

No, Bill, we didn't, and wouldn't, but as I said above I don't think they need any such permission. Our owning the content doesn't remove it from the public domain. We own the copy of that photo that's been posted here and can do with it as we see fit.

At least that's my interpretation of it.

Read Roger's post above, as well as the link I posted above about posting pics on social sites.

One possible solution would be to demand that the site give proper attribution to your photo with a link to YOUR site for referral to possible work....just sayin'

Several people have done exactly that. Jack Hamilton, Jimmy Reed, and Chad Dieter are the ones I know of so far. But there are pics from many more people than that on that site. It's like this guy went right thru the craziest projects thread and every pic that tickled his fancy, he downloaded to his site.

What about the statement in post #10 directly from their website....Would that not be a false claim to others work? Can we all just download pics. of others work form any public site and claim them as our own?

Let me add some much needed clarity to copyright here -

If you took the photo, you have copyright protection on it automatically.

A photo that you have copyright to that you then post on the internet does NOT enter the public domain. You would have to specifically give up your rights using a method like the Creative Commons license.

Photos you post online give the site where you posted them the right to display them. In a site like the JB Forum you are giving permission for the forum to host and display the image. That is it. You do not give up all of the rights from having the copyright.

The easiest thing to do when your work is infringed is to contact the person that took your work and ask them to take it down or provide a credit or link back to your own site. Assuming they agree your problem is solved. If they won't remove it then additional options are available to you. The link Bill gave a few posts up has more info should you decide to pursue action.

I'll answer that one Bill - If Jim took a copy of his own written words and his pics from that thread, then sure he could publish that. Taking someone else's posts wouldn't be cool.

Is there anyway to do a bulk delete of all photos that I have posted to this sight?

Or do I need to do each one individually?

You can google image search any picture;

Open google > Click on images > paste or drag image to the search box

That's all there is to it.
