How rampant online piracy squashed one insect photographer
Here is a true story about how copyright infringement costs my small photography business thousands of dollars every year... or, maybe it isn’t. It could also be a true story of how copyright infringement earns me thousands of dollars every year. I can’t be sure. Either way, this is definitely the story of how copyright infringement takes up more of my time than I wish to devote to it.
The issue is complex and this article really does it justice. Anyone here tried to make a go of it as a professional photographer?
Interesting article. I have often wondered about the issue of copyright of ones photos.
I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered one of my Faces of Tibet photos was been used by a travel company.
Quite chuffed when the flyer for a blues music gig we booked had a pic of mine as its flyer image!
Yet I am fortunate I do not rely on any income from my photos...can thus enjoy when someone steals one of my images...at least I then know I am not the only one enjoying them !!!
