MANY THANKS > FallDog1981 and Portlandbill


And ok, it cost me money (no victim of scam) but I go on with a laugh with my hobby. I will continue to adjust my site

I might soon be starting legal procedures myself.

I apparently now have the law on my side.
I'm glad I kept my negatives safe.

20yrs of using my images on a Bowie web site without my permission.

We'll see how it goes.

I'm supremely confident.

It's principle not cash and I never give in.

I heard that there is gonna be a massive copyright clampdown.
I really hope they don't fuck up the whole boot thing though, it is an oasis in a desert of commercial crap.

It's good that there is copyrights.
but it's a little strange for me that we want copyrights for a photo and on the othersite we we download or buy bootlegs.
and now i hide myself ;-) 8o  ;)

Good point well made.
Being asked first would have been the right thing to do.
I would never publish any fans personal photos without asking them first.

If it is about the principle you should reach out to the user who is using your pictures without your consent. They likely have never considered that they are doing harm to anybody by offering reference based information or sharing of bootlegs. Copyright is right and proper but often does not do enough to protect artists. In this instance you will likely see a better result by reaching out.

But all the same you should at least receive credit for the art you produce and share. There is never really a positive outcome in these things as courts see it a small change and lawyers make a fortune at the expense of everybody else.

Your art matters and fans seeing it is important of course. Nice if your name is attached to it too.

I'm on the other side of this question. I'm a professional artist, and my paintings and prints have shown up all over the place (without permission). Websites, boot covers, books.

I've never bothered to sue anyone, though I have contacted a few people and asked that they add proper attribution. They usually do.



...and then my mind split open.
