But how is that any different from making a print and showing it around (not for sale), then someone taking a picture of it, and using it as they see fit?
EVERYTHING IS COPYRIGHTED AT THE MOMENT OF INCEPTION, with or without a copyright mark ... correct ?? Just because I would ALLOW others to view or want their feedback doesn't meet the present legal definition of publishing ... does it ??
BTW ... I NEVER BLAMED Flickr, and I'm not blaming Flickr. The blame lies ENTIRELY on the offender. Flickr just happens to be a "Happy Hunting" grounds for many. Yes, I hear what you are saying about the Private capability that Flickr has, but it still 'feels' like driving a locked car through the middle of a turf war. It's supposed to be safe, but you just don't feel as good about it knowing that there are others out there watching for you to make a mistake ... yes, my mistake, but still their (offenders, not FLickr) WRONG DOING.
It's like blaming me for leaving my door unlocked and someone stealing my camera out of my car. Probably not wise to do (my mistake in judgment), and yes it was in public sight ... BUT THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO TAKE IT, AND I"M NOT THE ONE TO BLAME FOR THEIR WRONG ACTIONS ... if we were to believe that, then 'date rape' is okay too ... SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE ... you DIDN'T have PERMISSION !!!
We routinely share images in FM and they could as easily be lifted from here (just as wrong), but the world does not come to FM to look for free imagery as they do in the case of Flickr. It's the popularity of Flickr that makes it a target, not that there's anything wrong with Flickr.
