photo permission

I use other people's photos on my blog sometimes, but I ALWAYS get permission in advance.
Probably the folks who do not understand the ownership issue have never sold their picts. Even though mine sell for a little bit of money, it has sensitized me to the copyright issues.
Not everyone is aware.

I don't know about all cases, but in my case I have a notice on each and every page of my website: All photos copyrighted,   please ask permission before using.
Most photos, even those on google images, can be traced to a web site.  And most web sites have contact information on them.
Or, and this requires a bit more work, go to http://www.whois.net/
type in the website addresss, and see if the contact registrant information is available.

I have been guilty of this as until recently I was informed that picts have implied copyrights. I truly didn't know it was against the rules. Some picts say copyright but most don't  so I think the majority of the time they are honest mistakes. Of course using an incorrect pict isn't very bright. How does one contact a pict owner when there is no name to contact?

Subject: [Aroid-l] flowersforme123- another photo stealer

The seller flowersforme123 has used photos stolen from my website on quite a few of her auctions.
200133350054, 200133347754, 200133348402, 200133349756, 200133513649,  200133351248, 200133351560, 200133355503, 200133355900, 200133356435, 200133505052, 200133505219, 200133508875, 200133509578,  200133513268, 200133513649,

When I contacted her initially (I thought she used only two photos in two auctions) she denied it, and then said she gets 99% of her images from Google Images!

Then I get this- (in part)
. it was a mistke... your the first oerson who has ever emailed me like this so i dont want to ever offend you... can i ask you a question.. why do folks get so mad at folks using their photos...

The funniest thing is, the photos she stole are NOT of the plants she is trying to sell. 

So, whattya going to do?  I can't see the problem getting any better- only worse!
