I have arrived!

Yay! I’ve finally arrived as a photographer on the Internet.

Someone’s plagiarizing my photos on Facebook.

Compare this with this.

It’s not a huge thing – my photos from Flickr are all available under a Creative Commons license, but one of the requirements of the license is that I be credited as the photographer. I’ve asked the owner of the Facebook gallery to credit me. We’ll see how that goes.

I may have jumped the gun here. I’m a Facebook newbie, and it looks like the owner of the gallery may not be the one who posted all the photos.

In knitting news, I’m finally blocking Enchanting Juno’s scarf and I’m 1/4 of the way through some luscious alpaca/bamboo socks for my sister-in-law.

    Looks like one (or more) of the subjects of your photos posted the pictures to that album. Still sucks that they didn’t give attribution.

    Okay, am I a total idjit because I don’t have a Facebook account? Sorry, but I can’t get to the first link!

    I can certainly sympathize though. A couple years ago some photos I took during a major local event were used and attributed to someone else who was actually in another state at the time the event took place! Grrrrr…..

    Hey David, I think friends can swipe friends’ photos off facebook – so it must be one of your “friends”???? You can also change your settings on your pics so that only friends see it. If it’s someone else, maybe you let “friends of friends” see the pics and someone else is the culprit??

    BTW, those jousters sure were bloody… what’s up with that?

    Well, keep this in mind: If the Facebook gallery owner in question chooses not to credit you for your work, perhaps he needs to know that it could offend some knitters, AKA people who carry around sharp sticks. He can’t wear his armor everywhere, can he?
