    Just looking around on ebay and ran across this picture.


    It's kind of funny that the top left picture is the exact picture I snapped of my plant and have on my website.

    No one ever asked permission to use it.

    Would something like that bother you?

    Yes! If I could take pics like you, I would be bothered that someone profits from it. Did you contact the seller?

    Maybe a little, since they're trying to sell something with it. But in general, I think if you put something out on the internet, you should expect to see copies of it start popping up.

    Now I'm going to email this guy and ask he remove my pictures. If he would have asked first I would have said yes to using my pictures, but now NO.

    Look what else I just found.


    Middle picture. Have a large one on my website and also in my sig below.

    That's your Drosophyllum, right? Dude, I see that all over the place... you've got a lot of work cut out for ya.
    Look on the bright side - plagarism is the highest form of complement. They wouldn't be stealing your photos if they weren't good.

    Steve, I don't know much (ok anything) about copyright of photos on the internet, but I often notice that people put a line on each page stating copyrights and must contact owner for permission to use. I didn't see that on your site unless I missed that. Of course, it won't stop someone from copying, but it might be a start. Anyone with knowledge of this?

    Update--just found this at a site called pdimages.com

    Be Careful - No Copyright Notice is Necessary on Images


    Since October 31, 1988, works no longer need a copyright notice to have copyright protection. This means any image you find on a web page may be copyrighted. The traditional notice, such as "Copyright 1989 XZV Co." or " 1989 XZV Co." is no longer required. Most web site content has been created since 1988, so beware.


    I don't know if this means images automatically have protection, or that you simply don't have to display it.
