Those websites with Clare's images aren't accessible to me right now -- hopefully they are busy re-doing their site after eliminating her images.

Some very good info, links and discussion in this thread. I remember some years ago when AOL notified everyone that anything posted could be used by AOL for their purposes.

Jeanie, I understand your sister's worries about placing her son's images on the web -- someone, somewhere, might see them and make use of them in a sick fashion. Celebreties find their images reworked into nude or lewd images, or just plastered all over the world.

Any image uploaded to the web is liable to be taken for use without permission. Precautions can and should be taken to protect any saleable or otherwise important image -- those images that are for sale are usually posted very small and at very low resolution. But the final truth is -- if it's too important to lose, don't post it on the world wide web for everyone to see.

Jeanie,
Here in NY, the school websites are not permitted to show children from the school on their sites. With or without parental permission. This is for the very reason your sister is concerned. Sadly, people out there will do anything

Quick update

I have had some responses from other image holders from the sites that are using there images - all were unaware of there work being used and have sent the following to the web site holder. Others have done the same as below.

Dear Xande Rêgo,

This is an invoice for the images that you are currently using on your sites without prior consent. This amount is due immediately.

Image Pure Invoice
Date 27 - 11 - 2002

Usage of photographs on http://www.dual.weblogger.terra.com.br/
£150.00 per photograph x3 = £450.00
Unauthorized usage of photographs and infringement of copyright
£250.00 per photograph x3 = £750.00

Usage of photographs on http://detodosnos.weblogger.terra.com.br/
£150.00 per photograph x3 = £450.00
Unauthorized usage of photographs and infringement of copyright
£250.00 per photograph x3 = £750.00

Total = £2400.00

All prices are in sterling pounds. Payments should be made by a bankers cheque and made payable to Clare Sadler, at -

Image Pure
PO Box 170
Dartford
DA1 3WG
United Kingdom.

You are requested to remove all images with immediate effect. Failure to do this will result in my having to contact your web site administrator and sponsors with a further invoice for infringement of copyright and a request that your site is withdrawn and blacklisted until all images are removed.

You should further be aware that I have contacted the other copyright owners whose images you are using without their consent.

I have recieved a email back from the web site holder, saying that he is not interested in paying the invoice, but has agreed to remove the links to my site on his web pages. Another photographer has had the same responce when he issued an invoice to the host.

The web site owner claims he is an “writer/artist”, I’m surprised he doesn’t have more respect for the rights of other artists.

So at the end a hopefully successful outcome - I will keep checking until my images are removed.

Clare

As I find items that can be put into the html I will list them here for others to use - hopefully they will be of use

When writing your site's html Meta tag's include this one

<META NAME="COPYRIGHT" CONTENT="Copyright © 2001 your information here, all rights reserved">

Here is some java script to disable right click in Internet Explorer and Netscape. Unfortunately it does not work in the Opera browser, But if it deters some people it is worth the effort.
This needs to be placed in between the <Head> </Head> section of the html


Sorry this script didn't work - I will find another and post it!!!

Clare I posted the question of image/page protction on a tech forum and got a reply suggesting the use of htaccess. there is a link below to explain this.

http://www.webmastersguide.com/htacc...i/htaccess.htm


I don't know if it will be of any help to you.
Thanks for this thread, we all should be thinking about protecting our material.

Thanks Sandra,

I am going to contact my host to see if I can disable spongers using the images off my site. I will have to wait and see as to their answer. I am hopeful.

All links are useful and appresiated - thanks to all that have contributed to this thread.

As I find new ways of protection our images I will post them here.
Clare
