Copyright safe photo

Copyright safe photo, originally uploaded by Digital Monk.

Are you copyright infringementation safe? I am, because I've stopped worrying about it!

A Flickr friend recently deleted all his photos on Flickr after finding out that someone had used his photos without his consent. Although, he has started posting photos again, this is indeed sad as we will not be able to see his old photos.

when we decide to publish our photographs on the internet, it is not a matter of if, but when we will become a victim of morons who are more than happy to take credit for our work. So let us all be aware, than to be one day taken by surprise.

And if you really, really want to protect you work, it would be best to delete all your photos online and share/display them to others via other means such as exhibitions. I do know many people who do exactly that, and it works for them.

But for the other masses, who choose to be in the limelight via the internet, copyright infringement is inevitably part of to game. Like it or not, we will all have to live with it.
